Special Notice:
For any Non-Rider, there is a $15.00 Special Event Parking Fee at College Park-U of Md during events at Capital One at Maryland Stadium. Metrorail riders who use the same SmarTrip® card to ride to College Park-U of Md and exit the parking facility will be charged the standard parking rates in effect upon exiting. A qualifying Metro ride is one that begins at a station other than PG Plaza, West Hyattsville or Greenbelt. To qualify for a Metro rider rate, you must ride to College Park using Metrorail boarding at Fort Totten or farther south.

The $15 rate is in effect at the time of Kick Off and remains in effect until two hours after the event. This fee ensures that a market-based parking fee is charged to patrons attending these events.
