South Garage (next to Gampel) is now $12
North Garage is now $9.

It now costs more to park in Mansfield than Hartford. That is, of course, if you're enough of a sucker to use the garages in the first place.

Yeah, I was shocked it cost that much for the parking lot next to South Garage. IMO, that's price gauging. I can see 6 to 8 bucks, but 12. That's almost half the price of the ticket ($25 for pre-ordered season tickets). I'm splitting season tickets with someone which we made sure we split them as evenly venue wise as possible. I almost wish I had more XL games since I can park downtown where I work for free.

Usually I go w/ a friend who can split the parking cost, but I took my son to the Exhibition game.

Does anyone know who sets the price? Is it someone from the state or the university? I wish there were a way to protest. Just no where to park unless you want to walk for miles. So how many miles or part of a mile is 12 bucks worth? :)

Everybody wants a piece of the proverbial pie. What is the cost for the outside parking lot next too the garage going to be? I think I remember 10 bucks from last year.

I was shocked when i saw it was $12. I think that is way too out of control.

And for that price they throw in the 40 minute crawl out of said garage.

It costs $7 to park in a mud bog of a parking lot at most state parks.

$12 for an actual parking structure is the greatest bargain in the history of the world. In the time since you started to read this thread, you made $12.

You could send me the bill, but then I would have to fire you for drinking on the job.
