Denver Broncos Parking Tips
Parking for a Denver Broncos game at the Sports Authority Field calls for a bit of creative thinking if you don’t already have season parking permits for on-site stadium parking. If you don’t have a parking permit, you can choose from various modes of public transit, parking about a mile away and either walking or biking, or biking to the game and utilizing Sports Authority Field’s complimentary bike valet. But more on all of this later. Just know that when attending a Broncos game, it’s imperative you have a plan in order to avoid unnecessary traffic and frustration.
- Broncos fans overwhelmingly agree: plan your parking beforehand, arrive early, and be prepared to walk. Many fans avoid parking all together, opting for the light rail or taking Uber.
