Parking Options For Cooperstown Visitors During Induction Weekend
If you plan on heading to Cooperstown this weekend, one of the peak visitor times because of the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction activities, then it's advised that you plan to park in one of several parking areas and utilize various transportation options to prevent being delayed and adding to traffic.
The 2019 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 21 on the grounds of the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown. Attendees should give themselves plenty of time to find parking and transportation to the following points close to the Induction...
Three trolley lots, located just outside the village limits and color-coded in red, blue and yellow, are available for those visitors in the immediate Cooperstown village area. Parking in these lots is free, and a trolley ticket good for unlimited daily transportation costs $5. The trolley service will operate from 8:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily all weekend. Check out the trolley’s location at any time at followthetrolley.com.
Parking spots in these lots are limited. Trolleys will run only from the lots to regular stops in the village. Trolleys will not run to and from the Induction site. Hall of Fame shuttle service will provide free shuttle buses from the corner of Main and Fair streets to the Induction site on Sunday, with continuous service from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and then resuming at the conclusion of the Induction Ceremony. Shuttles will not run during the Induction Ceremony.
Three special paid parking lots will be available only on Sunday, July 21. These lots are located adjacent to the Blue Trolley Lot (paid lot is Cy Young Lot), on Route 33 just east of the Induction Site (paid lot is the Hank Aaron Lot) and on Route 33 south of the Induction Site (paid lot is the Babe Ruth Lot, which also includes shuttle service to the Induction site).
