Tina Brown, 36, of Sterling, who went to the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, said the parking situation was "really crazy." The new cash lots, where spaces cost $25 apiece, were in "the middle of nowhere," she said. She described a scene in which shuttle buses were packed and it took a linebacker's strength to get through the crowd that formed in front of the buses after the game.Ahhh, I love Washington. Where else can you pay $25 to park miles away from your destination, and then have to fight your way onto a shuttle bus?
"People were fighting to get on the buses," Brown said. "They were pushing. There'd be one bus, and it would fill up, and then it was like a free-for-all again. . . . It was horrible."
Where else can a parking pass for a game sell for more than the price of a ticket?
