2008-09 Basketball Parking Information
All parking lots open two hours prior to tip-off. Please check gamecocksonline.com for game schedule and times.
All Gamecock Club members with parking passes should park in the lots designated for Gamecock Club Parking, either in the DOT garage, Discovery garage entrance via Park Street or Lot A.
Donors holding parking pass with Gold and White color stripes for the DOT Garage should enter from either College Street, Lincoln Street or Pendleton Street.
Donors holding parking pass with Red and White color stripes for the DOT Garage should enter via Pendleton Street. Discovery Garage should be entered via Park Street. Lot A should be entered from either Greene Street or Devine Street. Because of pedestrian safety, beginning approximately 30 minutes prior to game time, the block of Greene Street bounded by Lincoln Street and Gadsden Street will be closed to all traffic. This block becomes a pedestrian walkway for fans entering the arena. The corner of Lincoln and Greene streets is patrolled by officers who help the foot traffic crossing the intersection. Traffic is routed south on Lincoln to Devine Street where vehicles can enter Parking Lots A, B and C off of Devine Street. After these lots fill up attendants will direct Gamecock Club members to the best available remaining parking.
Gamecock Club members with parking passes are not allowed to park in the lots labeled General Public until after Lot A, the DOT Garage and Discovery Garage are filled. Also, Lot F is the parking lot for the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. Therefore, this lot may not be available for some basketball games due to conflicting events at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
For approximately 20 to 30 minutes following the game, Greene Street is again blocked off between Lincoln and Gadsden for the pedestrians leaving the arena. The intersection of Lincoln and Greene is manned by officers to help with the pedestrian crossing. Parking Lot A will exit onto Devine Street and Gadsden Street until the pedestrian traffic subsides on Greene and Lincoln streets. Also during the post-game period, Lincoln Street between College and Devine is closed to vehicular traffic so that pedestrians may exit the arena area. Thru traffic on Greene Street westbound is prohibited at Park Street and Greene Street because of pedestrian flow and the traffic leaving Parking Lot D on Greene Street going east.
Information on the Bus shuttle for basketball will be available closer to the SEC basketball games.
