    The San Diego Chargers are strongly recommending that fans attending the Monday Night Football game against the Denver Broncos at Qualcomm Stadium use mass transit or carpool, and arrive EARLY. Kickoff for the AFC West showdown is scheduled for 5:30 pm.

    The parking lot at Qualcomm Stadium will open at 1:00 pm for general parking and 12 noon for those with pre-purchased permits. The lot is expected to fill quickly and close early, so fans are encouraged to get to the stadium gates early to ensure that they are in their seats for kickoff.
    To avoid heavy traffic around the stadium on Interstates 8 and 15, fans can also reach the stadium from Highway 163 and exiting onto Friars Road East.
    Those planning to ride the Trolley should note that the 5:30 pm kickoff is in the midst of the evening commute. Fans traveling after 3:30 should expect significant delays while attempting to board, as trains will arrive at some stations with capacity loads already on board. In addition, the level of service before the game will not be as frequent as it is before a Sunday afternoon game due to the limited number of trains available. Commuters traveling on the Green Line during this time are also advised to adjust travel patterns.
    After the game, extra Green Line service will be offered in both directions as needed. Blue Line service from Old Town will maintain 15-minute frequency until 9:45 p.m.
    Passengers heading to Qualcomm Stadium can use the Green Line park & ride lots, which include Old Town, Morena, Grantville, Grossmont Center, Amaya Dr. (La Mesa), El Cajon Transit Center, Gillespie Field, and Santee Town Center.Passengers heading to Qualcomm can also transfer to the Green Line at Old Town (from the Blue Line) or at Grossmont Center (from the Orange Line).
    Customers are encouraged to buy $5 day passes before boarding the Trolley on their way to their event in order to save time and avoid ticket lines. Tickets may be purchased at all Trolley station ticket vending machines, The Transit Store or ticket booths. An MTS day pass is good on the Trolley and most MTS bus routes. For further information on special event services or to purchase tickets, visit www.sdmts.com or contact 511.
    The entrance gates to the stadium will open at 3:00 pm on Monday, allowing ample time to get into the stadium and to your seats in time for kickoff. Club and suite ticket holders can enter the stadium beginning at 2 pm
    Fans commuting to Qualcomm Stadium from the north county will have the option of riding the North County Express Coach, which departs from the Coastal and Inland locations listed below. The departure schedule will vary with each game. For schedule information, visit www.chargers.com, the NCTD website at www.gonctd.com, or call 619-921-5011. Tickets are $25.00 round trip and must be purchased online in advance at http://ticketderby.com.
