Directions & Parking

Information on parking, parking rates, tailgating, the Chargers Express Bus, Trolley and Amtrak.


We strongly encourage fans to arrive at least 3 hours before game time and to carpool.

Driving Directions to the Stadium

During events with large attendance, the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot may become full prior to the start of the event. Guests are encouraged to carpool and to arrive at least three hours prior to the start of the event. If you arrive after the parking lot is closed, we encourage you to proceed to one of the Mission Valley trolley stops and ride the trolley to the stadium. Remember, traffic patterns vary inside and outside the stadium. Please follow the direction of traffic and parking personnel.

Main Gate Entrance

Please note that for most parking lot events or inside stadium events in which the expected attendance is less than 10,000, you will need to enter and exit through the stadium's main gate.

Public Transportation

The San Diego Metropolitan Transportation System (MTS) provides convenient access to Qualcomm Stadium via the trolley and bus lines. Using the MTS systems will speed up your access to the stadium and help you avoid congested highways.
