Here is the guide to Progressive Field parking below.
How Much is Progressive Field Parking Lots?
Official Progressive Field Parking rates hover around $15 at the Gateway East Garage. This garage is next to the stadium, so it can sell out quickly, especially at events where they will be a sellout. You should plan to arrive at the stadium a few hours before the first pitch to get one of these parking spaces.
If you want to secure a parking space near Progressive Field and save money, consider using the SpotHero listing above. Fans can expect to pay around $10 for parking space for most regular-season games. If you park in the Downtown area, you can expect to pay less than $10 for most events. However, unofficial parking spots near the stadium can go for $30.
Also, if the game is a sellout, like against the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, or Toronto Blue Jays, you can expect unofficial parking rates to increase. If you plan to go to one of these matchups, consider getting your parking space a week before the event before the price increases as supply goes down.
Is there Handicap Parking at Progressive Field?
Progressive Field offers accessible parking spaces in the garages near the venue for all events. Handicap parking is in the Gateway East Garage, which sits behind the left field wall at the baseball stadium. Fans must present a valid handicap parking pass to leave their cars in these spaces. Also, fans can use the drop-off and pick-up area off Ontario Street to bring fans to and from the game.
ADA parking is on a first-come, first-served basis, so fans should use SpotHero above to reserve parking before driving to the event.
Is there Tailgating in the Parking Lots?

Should I take Public Transportation?
There are public transportation options for fans when going to The Jake. Fans can use the Rapid Transit Rail, which has three lines that bring fans throughout downtown Cleveland.
