PARKING

GENERAL INFORMATION

Parking is available for purchase prior to events via Ticketmaster. All parking can be accessed via the Cross Island Parkway (cars only) exits 26A, 26B, and 26D.

Purchasing parking ahead of time is preferred for all UBS Arena events. Pre-paid parking is on sale up to two hours before the event start time. General paid parking is available on event days at Emerald Parking, located off of the Cross Island Parkway Exit 26D. For concerts, prices will increase $5 when purchased at the arena parking lots.

Pending availability, arena guests have access to 4 lots:

  • Emerald Parking Car access only via Cross Island Parkway exit 26D
  • Silver Parking Car access only via Cross Island Parkway exit 26B (Hempstead Turnpike East)
  • Diamond Parking Car access only via Cross Island Parkway exit 26B (Hempstead Turnpike East)
  • Belmont Park Garage Car access only via Cross Island Parkway exit 26A

Please note that access to UBS Arena via Cross Island Parkway Exit 26B (Hempstead Turnpike East) is only available for pre-paid Diamond & Silver Parking pass holders.

Due to the racing schedule at Belmont Park Racetrack, Silver Parking will have limited availability Thursdays through Sundays and may open at different times than other lots. 

To expedite guest arrivals, please pre-purchase parking and utilize the proper Cross Island Parkway exit to parking lots (see above list).

UBS Arena recommends arriving with enough time to avoid lines and traffic. We encourage guests who are driving to input their lot into GPS for the best experience. Type in the following into your GPS:
