Thanks for the clarification. I'm sure the priest cleared it with the archdiocese prior to signing the contract with the parking company. I for one can't wait to park in my own parish :)

 

 

Yup. I didn't check into any particulars of what sort of church it was before I responded, what I said is applicable to any church or non-profit.

 

In your case, St John Bosco Parish is a Catholic church and part of the Archdiocese of Miami, so, yeah, no doubt the whole thing was approved by the Archdiocese and the possibility of any problem whatsoever is less than zero. Walgreens is also getting in on the parking action, such as it is (at about $32/spot,) but your rates are probably better.

 

:lol

 

Very cool that your house of worship is only 2-3 blocks away from your other house of worship. So to speak.

Didn't you do your condescending thing recently towards a person who said they were going to do this exact thing as a result of the stadium?

 

Why, yes, I did.

 

I also said that I didn't believe a word of it. Although, it would be good if all of the "victims" left.

Marlins secure another 3,000 parking spaces ranging from a block away to 2 miles from the park. The spots are at nearby businesses, hospitals and government buildings...

 

As for the parking spots at the stadium-there are some leftover in which you could purchase online.

 

The Marlins have also identified 8,000 parking spots on nearby residential property in which the owners expect to offer individually...

[ You know... I'm actually a season ticket holder so... Ticket holder means I'm better than you.

 

You do realize no one has ever said or even hinted at that. But I will laugh at the hypocrisy of anyone that dosen't go to many games and throw tantrums whenever anyone else even mentions poor attendance. I find hypocrisy very funny. I also find it very fummy that it's usually those that don't even live near South Florida that are the ones trying to get things started.

There were some pretty good maps in Sunday's PBP on parking and getting to and from the park. I am seriously considering parking at the Civic Center and taking the trolley right now.

 

I think that will end up being the best option.

 

Is that article online anywhere? I can't seem to find it on their site.

I guess my fear for this one is that after the game it will be a cluster. It probably will be anyways but trying to catch a trolley post game just sounds awful.

 

I think I'm going to go for something within walking distance and just get there ridiculously early.

I wonder what the handicapped parking situation is. My dad has issues walking and it would be nice to be close.

 

 

Here is what I found out:

 

Handicapped parking at the stadium must be paid by visiting

www.marlins.com/parking. Once at the selected

parking facility fans with handicapped placard will be directed to any available

disabled space on the ground floor.

got back from the game a couple hours ago. after hearing the horror stories with regard to parking and traffic, i thought it was going to be a nightmare getting out of the stadium.

 

i literally have never gotten out of a stadium/arena more easily than i did for tonight's game. i couldn't believe it. slid right out of the parking lot (which was a block away from the ballpark) and didn't hit any traffic. the trick is to avoid the dolphin expressway and head straight to 95.

 

the thing with joe robbie was that everybody was essentially funneled through one exit. with the new ballpark, if you research the side streets ahead of time, there are so many ways to sneak out.

 

at any rate, that was my experience. i'm curious what others went through tonight.

What route did you take to get to 95? Sounds like there was traffic on the 836, so this might be a better route to take.
