Driving and parking downtown

Downtown is very busy with construction projects, so to plan your route, check the City’s Current Traffic Disruptions Map to see which roads are affected.

There is plenty of parking Downtown, as there are 18,000 stalls within a ten-minute walk of Rogers Place. You can pre-purchase your parking through Reef Events, park on the street using EPark, or park in one of the many surrounding parkades.

 

Taking transit

Edmontonians are encouraged to use transit. The Capital Line has extra service and features four Park & Ride locations with free parking. Reserved Park & Ride stalls are open to the general public on weekends. LRT riders are encouraged to use Bay/Enterprise Square or Churchill stations and walk a few short blocks to the arena. In addition, over 40 bus routes serve Downtown and are within walking distance to Rogers Place. Riders can plan their trip ahead on takeETS.com

**People going to the Dolly Parton concert on Saturday, September 17 should note that Metro Line service will be suspended September 17 and 18 to accommodate warranty and maintenance work. Shuttle buses will run between Metro Line stations and downtown approximately every 15 minutes, with extra service every 7-8 minutes for Saturday’s special events.
