Construction of LA Live is ongoing and parking availability at STAPLES Center has changed. Please review the parking map/directions below and plan your trip accordingly. Allow extra time to arrive safely and find parking. We apologize for any inconvenience. For additional parking information call 213-742-PARK. For more information on LA LIVE construction, please call 800-975-7421.

The exciting events hosted at STAPLES Center often attract large crowds. STAPLES Center provides ample parking in several lots adjacent to the arena (see the Parking Lot map.) Our Parking Staff will facilitate parking in these lots. It is recommended that you plan your trip before you leave home and allow extra time for unanticipated delays due to traffic congestion, road construction, etc. Always follow traffic safety precautions when traveling to and from events.

Parking Rates
Parking rates vary depending on the event. Rates generally range between $15 - $25. For more specific event information, please call (213) 742-7275 (213-742-PARK).

Limos/Buses/Oversize Vehicles
Please call (213) 742-7382 for pricing information.

Prepaid Parking
Prepaid parking is available through STAPLES Center's Box Office, Ticketmaster outlets and online at Ticketmaster.com. When you purchase an event ticket, you may also purchase prepaid parking. Purchasing parking before an event is not only convenient, but it will allow you to plan your trip directly to your designated parking lot and avoid unnecessary delays in locating parking.

Disabled Parking
Designated parking is available for Guests with disabilities. These spaces, including van-accessible spaces, are designated for vehicles displaying a current state-issued disability placard or license plate. Guest Services can provide further information regarding parking access for guests with disabilities. We may require proof of California ADA registration. Please contact Guest Services at (213) 742-7-FAN (213-742-7326).

No Parking/Tow Away Zones
Please observe the No Parking zones located around the arena. Specifically, Chick Hearn Court (formerly 11th Street) between Cherry Street and Figueroa is designated as a No Parking/Tow Away zone. Violators will be ticketed and/or towed. If you wish to purchase tickets at the Box Office or to shop at Team LA, please park in Lot W or Lot 5.

Tailgating Prohibited
Tailgating is prohibited in any of the STAPLES Center parking lots.

Limousines and Buses
During our construction of LA LIVE, space for oversized vehicles is very limited. We recommend that all oversize vehicles make arrangements prior to the event. Please call 213-742-7382 to obtain a prepaid parking pass.

Please make arrangements 10 days prior to your event. Oversized vehicles will not be accepted in lot #1. Space permitting, oversized vehicles will be taken in other pass lots but will be charged an additional fee. General parking for oversized vehicles is sold on a first come first serve basis and usually fills quickly.

Please obey all posted signs when dropping off. The recommended drop off areas are: the white zone on Figueroa (Southbound) just north of 12th street; the taxi drop off on Figueroa (Southbound) between Olympic and 11th. Please be aware that LAPD will enforce the no stopping signs posted around the venue.

Parking Lot Hours of Operation
Parking Lot W and Lot 5 will open at 8 a.m. for Guests visiting the Box Office and Team LA store. Parking Lots 1 and C will open two and a half hours prior to the start of an event. All other lots will open 90 minutes prior to the start of an event and will remain staffed 60 minutes after an event. No overnight parking or in and out privileges are permitted.
