The Las Vegas Raiders say visitors to their new stadium off the Las Vegas Strip can take advantage of 35,000 parking spots within a mile of the stadium in nearby lots and garages, along with dedicated lots for ridesharing.

Raiders President Mark Badain and other officials on Thursday announced a parking and transportation plan for the 65,000-seat stadium.

KLAS-TV reported game day parking spaces will range between $40 and $100, with the average price at $75. People with personal seat licenses will be able to reserve spots.

Badain said the NFL team has 13,000 spots under its control and 22,000 are available at nearby casino-resorts.

The bridge crossing Interstate 15 at Hacienda Avenue will be closed to cars and open for pedestrians to cross on gamedays and other events. It’s estimated to be a 10 to 15 minute walk.

A double-decker bus running every 15 minutes will be available from 57 stops along Las Vega Boulevard, with a stop near the Hacienda Bridge at Mandalay Bay.

Officials encouraged people to arrive to games early, especially if they plan to tailgate.

The Raiders preseason opens Saturday, Aug. 14 at home against the Seattle Seahwawks. The regular season opens Monday, Sept. 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.
