The National Football League (NFL) team Las Vegas Raiders announced details of the Allegiant Stadium (US) transportation and parking program for the 2021-2022 seasons. The announcement kicks off growing anticipation for the Raiders second Las Vegas season and the first to permit fans into the swanky stadium.

The ‘Allegiant Stadium’ stated that at a presser held at the astounding arena on June 4th, the Las Vegas Raiders President Marc Badain, who was joined by the Clark County Commissioner, Michael Naft, MJ Maynard, CEO, Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Southern Nevada, Chuck Bowling, President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino/Luxor Hotel and Casino, and Captain Roxanne Burke of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), encouraged fans to explore the many options for getting to and from Allegiant Stadium. Badain emphasized the ease and convenience of accessing the facility from the Las Vegas Boulevard side by walking across the Hacienda Bridge, which will be closed to automobiles on game- and major event-days.

The 65,000-capacity Allegiant Stadium is a domed stadium located in Paradise, Nevada, United States. It serves as the home stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League (NFL) and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Rebels college football team.

Stated Badain, “We are fortunate the Las Vegas resort corridor is so close to Allegiant Stadium. It provides many opportunities for fans to begin and end their day on the Strip at their favorite resort, restaurant or bar. The RTC’s Deuce bus runs 24/7 up and down the Strip with a drop-off near Hacienda Bridge, and we expect many resort properties to offer shuttle service to the East side of Hacienda Bridge. Fans can also take taxis, Uber or other rideshare options, or transit to the area. So, no matter how you get to the Strip, it will be easy to access Allegiant Stadium. At 0.3 miles, the Hacienda Bridge is a short 10- to 15-minute walk from its East side to the stadium gate.”

Added Bowling, “As proud neighbors of the Las Vegas Raiders, and the leader in the sports and entertainment industry, we plan to offer football fans from across the country a Vegas-style sports experience in the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World. Our properties’ proximity to Allegiant Stadium, combined with a variety of live entertainment programing, pre- and post-game activations, and tailgate festivities will create a one-of-a-kind electric atmosphere throughout the 2021 season.”

‘The Allegiant Stadium’ further stated that for those who take Uber or other rideshare services, there are four rideshare lots on the East, South and Northwest sides of the stadium, making it a good option from multiple directions. A dedicated space West of the stadium is available for taxis, shuttles and general drop-off and pick-up before and after games.

According to Maynard, the RTC is well-positioned to help stadium-goers with their transportation needs – “Our popular, double-decker Deuce buses run 24/7 on the Las Vegas Strip every 15 minutes from 57 stops, including a stop nearest Hacienda Bridge at Mandalay Bay. That makes the Deuce an easy, efficient and economical way for visitors and locals to get to the Hacienda Bridge regardless of where they are on the Strip.”

A 24-hour Deuce pass, priced at $8, allows fans to ride the Deuce to the game, back and anywhere else they would like to go on the Strip. For locals seeking a low-cost option to get to the Strip from home, Maynard said the RTC offers many transit routes from all parts of the valley, and riders can plan and pay for their trip on the RTC’s app, rideRTC.

Added Badain, “There is no shortage of parking options for Allegiant Stadium patrons who choose to drive their own cars. Relative to many comparable NFL stadiums across the country, Allegiant Stadium has considerably more parking options within walking distance of the stadium.”

There are approximately 35,000 parking spaces within a one-mile radius of Allegiant Stadium. This includes 13,000 spaces at multiple lots controlled by the stadium and priced according to proximity to the arena. Approximately, 22,000 spaces are located at nearby resort properties and neighboring businesses.

Continued Badain, “We encourage those who wish to drive and park their own vehicles to allow plenty of time to get to the stadium, particularly at the beginning of the season as they become familiar with the area, including streets that will become one-way on gamedays. We also encourage those who wish to park near the stadium to purchase parking in advance as day-of-event parking may not be available.”

Season parking passes for Las Vegas Raiders home games at Allegiant Stadium will go on sale in June with priority given to the Southern Nevada Personal Seat License (PSL) holders and Club Seat buyers.

As per Badain, there are circa 6,000 parking spaces at lots controlled by the stadium where tailgating is allowed – “In addition, many nearby resorts are planning pre-game tailgating activations to expand the celebratory and fun atmosphere typically associated with an NFL game or major event.”

Single-event parking passes are also available at select lots with tailgating allowed at designated lots only. Single-event parking passes will be available on the SpotHero app later this summer for both Raiders games and other Allegiant Stadium events. Single-event parking passes should be pre-purchased in advance as day-of-event parking may not be available.

Badain concluded, “As we experience our first season open to fans at Allegiant Stadium, we expect to learn more about fan preferences relative to parking and transportation. Any subsequent changes will be announced on our website and shared with PSL holders.”
