The new spaces help fans but do not solve the problem of parking for neighbors of Marlins Park.

The Miami Marlins, under fire for failing to provide enough parking spaces for fans or the people who live near the new stadium, said Saturday they have secured an additional 3,000 spaces anywhere from a block to 2 miles from Marlins Park.

The Marlins also announced details of their plans to provide shuttles and trolleys from some of the more distant lots.
However, the new spaces don’t solve the problem for Little Havana residents whose on-street parking was eliminated to accommodate traffic around the new Marlins Park.

The additional spots are located in 14 parking lots at nearby businesses, hospitals and government buildings.

The Marlins have 5,700 on-site parking spots for a stadium that seats 37,442 people. However many of the spots are reserved for season ticket holders. The remaining spots are available for pre-purchase online. Spots are expected to sell out on or before game day, so fans should purchase their spots online early if they want on-site parking, the Marlins said.

Some of the new spots aren’t available online yet, but the Marlins said they expect to get them online soon.
