The venue offers several official lots that open on matchdays, as well as private and public parking lots that tend to sell out quickly during major events.

Parking fees for the stadium’s official parking lots and cash lots vary depending on the event but expect to pay around $10 – $20 for match-day parking. We recommend buying parking passes for official lots from legitimate online sellers to guarantee a spot and get the lowest rates.

The nearest and most convenient places to park are in the stadium’s official parking lots:

  • West Lot
  • South Lot
  • North Lot
  • 90th Lot
  • Zagg Brands Lot
  • Canyons Lot

Parking for people with disabilities is available in the West Lot, next to the stadium along the premium and VIP lots.

Additionally, the map above indicates several cash lots within walking distance from the stadium (highlighted in pink) and several public parking spaces (highlighted in cyan) that fill up very quickly during major league soccer games.

Tips for Parking at the Stadium

We did a little digging and found some parking tips to make your parking experience more convenient. Take these into account before selecting where to park.

  • Visitors looking to save may park for free at Sandy City Hall or the Trax Station. A free shuttle service runs pre- and post-game from the Sandy City Hall parking lot to the stadium’s north loading zone.
  • While the Jordan Commons parking lot is marked “no parking” on the map above, you may be able to park for free if you dine at nearby restaurants.
  • We recommend parking farther from the stadium to circumvent post-game traffic and congestion.
  • It is permitted to tailgate in official Rio Tinto Stadium parking lots; however, open fires and charcoal are prohibited.

Street Parking Near the Stadium

Parking on the public streets surrounding the venue is limited to a few designated areas. Moreover, some neighborhoods next to the stadium are strict ‘No Parking’ zones on event days, and visitors need a valid Sandy City parking permit to park in these areas.

Keep an eye out for parking signs and regulations if you plan to park on public streets. We recommend pre-booking your parking or selecting an off-street parking option to avoid incurring a parking ticket.

Use Public Transport

The TRAX light rail system is the most convenient way to reach the Rio Tinto Stadium. The stadium is connected to downtown Salt Lake City by Station Sandy Expo on the blue line, located approximately 10 minutes away.
