The Athletics department of Penn State announced on Friday morning, a few changes to its gameday and season tickets parking for the upcoming football season.
The price of season tickets will have a small increase in cost by two dollars per game. This home slate includes the 100th all-time meeting of Pitt and Penn State. A release stated that renewals for season tickets should open early sometime in December. It is there that fans can renew their tickets from that time until the first of February. A public season ticket for the main seating bowl in the stadium costs $434 now, an increased price from last year’s $420.
The cost for season permits for overnight RVs and cars won’t change. However, the university has made changes to how fans access their assigned parking lots for the next season. There are four new traffic zones: North, South, East, and West. These zones will help facilitate traffic both before and after the games and should simplify the parking map located around Beaver Stadium.
The New Parking Zones And Other Changes
The parking zone in the North is only accessible through Fox Hollow Road. Meanwhile, the South zone is accessed through either University Drive or Porter Road from US-26/College Ave. For the East zone, US-322 and I-99 are the two paths towards it, and the West is accessible via Atherton Street towards Park Ave.
Every parking permit features a specific zone as well as driving instructions for the fans to follow. The three-tiered system of Reserved, Preferred, and General for Penn State isn’t leaving anytime soon. However, the names or numbers for a few parking lots are to change within the next season.
For those with Yellow permits from this year, you need to renew your parking permit and choose a specific general lot for the next, upcoming season. Selections for the public lots is to occur after the first of February next year.
As for advance single-game vehicle permits, the cost is rocketing from a simple $5 to $25. However, the university won’t charge fans for any fees should they purchase their permit at Bryce Jordan Center’s ticket office. One-game permits are available as soon as the single-game ticket sales start back up.
Penn State will also begin offering three general parking cash lots in the North, East, and West traffic zones.
