NEWS RELEASE

Consider transportation options and parking decisions before Timbers game

(PORTLAND, Ore.) – The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation is asking Timbers soccer fans to consider their transportation options and parking decisions before Sunday’s opening game day to keep streets and transit running smoothly. Drivers are encouraged to park downtown in a SmartPark garage and walk, or use an express bus to get to the game instead of parking in neighborhoods near Jeld-Wen Field. Walking and bicycling are good options, too, as well as arriving early or staying late on game day to avoid crowds and traffic congestion.

Event-goers are encouraged to check out transportation and parking information online at www.trimet.org and www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/timbers and make a plan before leaving home for the game. With streets and sidewalks expected to be crowded on game day near Jeld-Wen Field, fans are advised to be careful and patient and follow directions by Police and signage in the area.

Go Timbers!
