$990 For A Parking Spot?

If you’re lucky enough to have a ticket to Super Bowl XLV between Pittsburgh and Green Bay, then the next step is to find parking near Cowboys Stadium.

Talk about price gouging,  that might be more expensive than the ticket.

According to ParkWhiz.com, there is a spot available a tenth of a mile from Cowboys Stadium going for $990 at 908 North Collins at Ticketsource.com Parking. To be fair, you would have access to a restroom, on-site security and the ability to tailgate.

The other prices range from $550 at Ballpark Valero Event Parking, which also is a tenth of a mile away, to $55 at Five Georges Parking, a mile away near Six Flags.

“This is the most expensive,” ParkWhiz.com CEO Aashish Dalal said. “When you’re talking about bowl games there were some that were pretty high. We did the Cotton Bowl and the Rose Bowl but none compare to what we see here.”

The lot owners and operators set the price, not ParkWhiz.com. It has worked with the city of Arlington to determine the legal lots so fans have secured parking.

“In terms of customers booking reservations there’s a lot of apprehension: Is it safe to reserve online?” Dalal said. “We have parking with a guarantee. … We back up all of our parking. We pick only certain sellers that will uphold the ParkWhiz brand. That’s important to us because if you’re spending $900 for parking, you better be getting a spot.”

The NFL offers parking — www.sbxlv.clickandpark.com/superbowl — at Six Flags for $71.40, plus tax and shipping for those attending the game, and will include free shuttle service to the stadium gates.

But it does not allow for tailgating. OH BOY!!
