A free shuttle runs during most major events on the yard when parking is restricted. Visitors can also park in town and enter through the pedestrian entrances at Gate 1 at the foot of King George Street and Gate 3 on Maryland Avenue. All visitors will be required to show a valid government-issued picture ID. No bags or backpacks will be allowed on the grounds.  Cars with handicapped tags or dashboard cards must be issued a pass from Pass and ID at Gate 1 during normal business hours.  After hours a pass may be issued by the Shift LT at Gate 8. For more specific parking and access information, please see the General Visiting Information FAQ.
