Here to cheer on the Buffalo Bisons? Built in 1988, Sahlen Field in New York is the world’s first retro-classic baseball park. With a seating capacity of 16,600 people, the venue is also the United States’ highest-capacity Triple-A ballpark. With no on-site parking, fans will have to deal with limited parking spaces around the vicinity. Prepare for gameday by learning about nearby parking spaces and garages, updated rates, and transportation options.

Street Parking Options

Street parking near Sahlen Field

We dug a little and discovered several free street parking areas near the stadium. On gamedays, several fans park along Swan St or S Division St past Michigan Avenue. While there are no parking meters here, we recommend parking cautiously as this is a residential area. Follow city parking rules to avoid getting towed or incurring a Buffalo parking ticket

Ride Public Transport

Downtown Buffalo is served by the NFTA (Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority). Fans may ride bus lines 11, 14, 16, 24, and 8 to several bus stations just a five-minute walk to the stadium. Alternatively, visitors may ride the Metro Rail to Church St Station, a five-minute walk from the venue. Visit the NFTA website for stops, schedules, and fares.
