Ottawa REDBLACKS Logo

TD Place has collaborated with the City of Ottawa and OC Transpo to create accessible transportation options, to reduce traffic congestion, promote sustainable transportation modes, and get you to the event on time and stress-free!

During Ottawa REDBLACKS games, TD Place Parking will be unavailable 3 hours prior to each game time, with the exception of Otto’s Club Members, where parking is included with their membership.

Plan ahead and make your experience as seamless as possible by taking advantage of our FREE shuttle options (OC Transpo & OSEG Shuttles) or using our bike valet! Learn more about all of the available options below!

Come early to avoid the last-minute lines, we recommend you arrive 60 minutes before games and events.

Public Transit

If you are a TD Place or Lansdowne event ticket holder, your ticket to events at TD Place gets you free public transit service on all OC Transpo routes, starting three hours before the event and three hours after the event. This applies to all tickets for Ottawa REDBLACKS, Ottawa 67’s, Atlético Ottawa, Ottawa BlackJacks games as well as all other TD Place concerts, festivals, and events.

Plan Your Trip

OC Transpo: You will need to show bus operators your mobile tickets for your free ride.
LRT Stations: Your game-day ticket gets you a free ride on the LRT! At fare gates for LRT stations, you will need to access the ‘video chat’ function on the ticket machines to chat to a customer service agent, who will issue a pass and get you through the fare gates.  To access the ‘video chat’, you should click on the “We’re here to help” button available on the ticket machines to launch the conversation.

Remember to keep your event ticket stub for your return trip on transit!

Without a game ticket, standard OC Transpo fares apply and standard payment options are accepted, including PRESTO, tickets, monthly passes and transfers.

• City Hall: 110 Laurier Ave W, Ottawa, ON, K1P 1J1.

Park at City Hall for free! When you enter the garage at City Hall, take a spitter ticket as you would at any garage, present it and your game ticket to a TD Place representative inside the liftgate.
The TD Place representative will validate the spitter ticket to eliminate all charges that would normally be applied by the City Hall Parking. After you park your car, get to ground level and catch a free shuttle to TD Place from the south entrance of the building fronted by Lisgar Street. When you return to your car after the game, use the validated spitter ticket to exit the garage. For more information, please contact us.
