Before reaching Providence Park, we recommend initially identifying a suitable mode of transportation to reach the stadium quickly and safely. Patrons can easily access Providence Park on foot or via automobile, bicycle or public transportation. However, due to the stadium's downtown location, parking is limited near the facility. As a result, the use of public transportation or other modes of travel is highly recommended. Congestion may occur on roads before and after events, meaning alternate modes of travel provide more efficient trips to and from Providence Park.

The Best Travel Advice We Can Give: Come Early, Stay Late

Great shopping, eating and entertainment opportunities surround Providence Park. Local bars and restaurants welcome Timbers fans before, during and after matches to enjoy all that Northwest and Goose Hollow have to offer.

Public Transit

Max Light Rail

Transit: Preseason Service

MAX Light Rail (Blue Line and Red Line) will run normally with no extra service on preseason game days. Please be patient and be prepared to wait, as each train can only hold about 350 people. The Kings Hill/SW Salmon MAX Station will be closed starting one hour before the game and reopening 1.5 hours after the game ends.

There will be no express bus service to regular-season or preseason games.

Transit: Season Service
TriMet will be running extra service on game days, but please be patient and be prepared to wait, as each train can only hold about 350 people. Trains will return to regular schedule service approximately one hour after the match. The Kings Hill/SW Salmon MAX Station will be closed starting one hour before the game and reopening 1.5 hours after the game ends.

If you’re parking at a lot downtown or coming in on MAX Green Line or Yellow Line, you can catch an express bus to the stadium at SW Morrison & 5th or Morrison & 10th. Express buses will be running frequently 1.5 hours before and after each game. The express bus requires a valid TriMet fare each way.

After the game - catch the bus across the street from the stadium entrance for direct service back downtown to your parking garage or MAX. 

Plan your trip through TriMet.


Bike parking will be located on SW Morrison Street close to the intersection with SW 18th Avenue. The bike parking will be guarded throughout the match by stadium personnel. Bike parking for season ticket holders is sold out. There will be a limited number of spaces available for non-season ticket holders. For Thorns FC matches, a limited about of bike parking spaces will be available in the loading zones on Morrison Ave. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


DRIVERS: PLEASE PLAN AHEAD -- Streets and sidewalks are expected to be crowded on game days near Providence Park. Fans choosing to drive should be safe by following signs and police direction, driving slow and being patient. To save time and avoid traffic congestion, make a plan before leaving home or work for where you will park downtown and whether you can use TriMet’s express bus or walk to the game. Please note that SW 18th Avenue will be closed to the general public between W Burnside Street and SW Taylor Street, and SW Morrison Street will be limited to westbound, local traffic only between SW 19th and SW 21st Avenues.

Certain parking time limitations affect area street parking. Please check Northwest Portland Event Parking Guide for more information or visit

Parking is also available at the Fox Tower right on the Max line at 805 SW Broadway. For all Timbers games, fans parking at Fox Tower will receive $1 off parking upon presentation of a Timbers ticket stub.
