Buy a parking pass. If you don't you're parking in the dirt, and that's where the horror stories come from.



And there's no stores to park at near candlestick. And you definitely don't want to go find one in Hunters Point. lol


I've parked in the dirt lots for 20+ years, well over 100 games...never had any problems, except for some mud on the rare occasions when it rains hard. Last year it was $30 for the games I attended. Parked in stadium main lot for a couple years but didn't like it because too packed, too many a-holes who think that they're entitled to use parking spaces for tailgate, and took way too long to get out after games....outer dirt lot I get out pretty quick, take side streets off Carroll to get onto 3rd, make a right on Bryant and I'm on the bridge. I know some people who have parked for free on the street (Carroll), but much farther walk and to me a lot riskier than the closer-in dirt lots.

I imagine in all your years you've figured how to work the system. Are you saying in 20+ years you've never been stuck in the dirt barely moving for an hour or more? I find that sorta hard to believe. If you aren't very close to the exit or by one of the main veins of the exit, you can sit forever and not even move. I've been there a few times. Just listening to knbr after the game you hear people calling in saying they've been trying to get out since the end of the game and haven't moves in hours.

only one explanation...he leaves early
Best seats are Upper Box sections 7-19 (Odd numbered), section 15 is the best!!!

Used to have season tix in section 15 (2007-2010), LOVED IT! All Niner fans who don't sell/give tickets to opposing fans, and no bad drunks (if there are, security really cool near there and will escort them out, so ur kid can have fun). Also, clear view of Jumbotron, Garlic fries right next to section 17, shade around 2:30-3pm, and mens restroom next to section 15 (don't have to walk too far ).

I also had season tix before I got to section 15 in upper reserve 54 (other side of stadium), and I had horrendous experiences there. No view of Jumbotron, sun in your face the entire game, and worst of all most of the visiting fans were there and I got into too many fights. Lots of swearing and lots of food/beer/etc being thrown there, just unpleasant (though, once again, may have changed since I was in that section in 2006)

Tickets around section 15 usually between 64-75 bucks, but dunno how much season tix went up since I left two years ago. Hope this helps

Oh yeah, get the parking pass if u can.

Same thing happens in the main lot too though. If you park too close to the stadium just getting out of the lot can take days.

Point taken, but 45 minutes after the game the main lot is empty. The same can not be said about the dirt.

So, where exactly do you get the passes on gameday?

at the parking lot gates..you have to get there early like when the gates open

Not always true. Certain games they do not sell at the gate, passes only. Always true whenever we play the Raiders (either pre-season or reg. season) and marquee games.

- 98

So when I go to the Texans game, if I get to the main gate 4 hrs before game, I should be able to get in by just paying $30 at the gate?

i would just park in the business building before candlestick and walk to the main lot and meet people who are tailgating. i think parking is $35-$40 there. you'll get onto 101 pretty quick using the back route.

This is good advice if you want rapid in and out. But you won't be able to take alcohol into the main parking lot to share with your buds this way. Best to just try the main gate right when it opens, then if that fails fall back on either that business park or the dirt lots.
I plan on making my first and last trip to Candlestick for the Carolina game. I was looking at different options for transportation and was wonderful if its a good idea to hop on one of those buses that run on gameday for about $30 or if I should use the BART?

I didn't say I've never been stuck in traffic...I am saying it was far worse when I did stadium parking, and that I've never had any problems with break-in's etc, which I assumed you meant when you referred to horror stories. Yeah, I could get on 101 right there at the stadium, but I need to get to the Bay Bridge and then I'm stuck in traffic forever on 101/80. I've tried every route over the years, and the big lot at the end of Carroll, which is more asphalt/gravel than dirt, has worked out best. The key for me is once game is over and we're leaving, there's no leisurely stroll to the car, it's like boot camp and Mt. Mthrfkr because I am humpin'...not sprinting, but whoever is with me I tell them to step it out. And like I said, not staying on Carroll all the way to 3rd but instead cutting through the warehouse area really helps.

The worst traffic I've ever been in was getting to and leaving a game a few years ago when it was Fleet Week, plus there was a racing event, and some "festival" in the Castro...but while we were waiting I let some dude cut in ahead of us, and to say thanks his rackalicious woman flashed us a couple times, so that helped.

That wasn't the sun, it's the reflection off of Gore's helmet as he runs in for touchdowns

I guess I didn't mind it, anything is better than that section 54 experience

well yeah that's for sure
I am flying in from NC for the Houston game in October. Kickoff is at 5:30 and my flight out is at 11:55pm. Will I have enough time to catch that flight after the game? Mapquest shows the stadium is 7 miles for the airport, but I know traffic willbe a wreck! Any suggestions????

It won't take you more than an hour to get to the airport. You should be ok.
