Transportation & Parking

Going to drive to the game?

Parking is very limited near the stadium and is also restricted on game days. Instead of parking in neighborhoods near the stadium, the City of Portland encourages Timbers and Thorns fans to park downtown at a SmartPark garage or one of the many nearby parking lots/garages. See below for more parking information.

Providence Park is well served by other travel modes. Take the stress out of game days and walk, bike, or take transit! See detailed information on all of your game day options below.

Transit: Season Service

TriMet will be running extra train service on game days with MAX Blue and Red lines. The last eastbound Red Line train to the Airport comes through the Providence Park station at 11:13 pm on weekdays, and 11:09 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Providence Park is also served by bus lines 6, 15, 20, and 24. There will be extra bus service (if needed) after the games to allow for better social distancing. TriMet staff will be available to assist riders. Please be patient and be prepared to wait.

TriMet COVID-19 precautions:

  • Masks: Federal law requires wearing a mask on transit that covers your mouth and nose. TriMet has free masks available in dispensers on all of its vehicles, if you need a fresh one. Masks are also required at busy stations and stops.
  • On-board limits: TriMet limits the number of riders on board to allow for social distancing. Those limits are posted near the doors. Seats are also marked off to help riders spread out from others.
  • Social distancing: Plan extra time and please be respectful of others. If there is not enough room on board to spread out from others by 3 feet, please wait for the next bus or train. Another one should arrive soon.
  • Hand sanitizer: All buses and most MAX trains have hand sanitizer available near doors if needed.
  • Exiting: Please exit through the backdoor on buses to avoid those boarding at the front. On MAX, please wait for others to exit before boarding.


Taking a Lyft or Uber to and from the match? There are designated pick up/drop off locations.

  • Corner of SW Alder & 19th
  • SW Salmon – in front of Lincoln High School
  • SW Morrison & 20th Place


Free bike parking will be located on SW Morrison Street close to the intersection with SW 18th Avenue. The bike parking will be guarded throughout the match by stadium personnel.


Riding an electric scooter to the game? You can park along SW Morrison between SW 18th and 20th Avenue on the north side of the street as well as south side of Morrison between SW 17th and 18th Avenue near the MAX station plaza during matches. These locations are geofenced with scooter partners for where your scooter can be parked. No parking is allowed on the Providence Park sidewalks.

Additional Transportation Recommendations
