Buy a Heinz Field parking pass or a ticket for the Steelers game?
Since more than one-third of tailgaters never actually enter the stadium, that’s actually a valid question…
Especially since the average cost of parking for a Steelers game costs nearly as much as a game ticket.
The average cheapest parking pass cost $114.39, 10th-highest in the NFL. Yes, cheapest - in other words, you could easily pay twice as much, if not more.
So before you consider your options, let me first present…
So if being squeezed out of the red & blue lots makes you turn red or feel blue, or you just want to go for the gold (lot), well you can just forget it.
Resale prices for gold lot passes can easily reach $200 for certain games.
There are plenty of spaces in the lots on the other side of the Allegheny River that will charge you as little as 5 bucks even for event parking, and all of them are within a short walk to the Port Authority rail lines that are within the free-fare zone.
So while you won't be able to tailgate in these places and you will be a bit farther from the stadium, you won't have to deal with the nightmarish gridlock when exiting the North Shore parking lots. And, of course, you'll also save some money that you can use for other things, like a Primanti Bros. sandwich or a ride on the Allegheny Wharf Water Limo.
The bottom line? If you want cheap parking near Heinz Field, you’re going to have to make some sacrifices, such as tailgating. Now if the mere thought of giving up this second pastime/tradition makes you hyperventilate, well… I’m not suggesting you give it up permanently, I’m merely saying that forgoing it even once will possibly save you 100 bucks.
