Public Transit Memorial and Labor Day Weekend Trips - 2017

Which MLB stadiums are well served by public transportation from 1) the closest major airport and 2) from the closest other MLB stadium?  ( I don't want to rent a car.)

I live in north Louisiana, so other than driving 3.5 hours to Globe Life Park in Arlington or 4.5 hours to Minute Maid Park in Houston, I'll have to fly somewhere to see a game (or two or three) on the weekend.  I'm trying to put together a trip over Memorial Day weekend and a trip over Labor Day weekend where I fly somewhere and go to at least two different stadiums all via Uber, subways, and/or short Amtrak rides.

Both the Yankees and Mets are home during the Memorial and Labor Day weekends. They follow each other from Friday to Monday. Public transportation will take you to both Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. If you are thinking of this buy your tickets early. Remember, hotels in the NY area are also very pricey. Good Luck.

Thanks for the advice, Steven!  That could be one of the two trips.  

I'm also thinking about Indians/Pirates over Memorial Day weekend or Cubs/ChiSox/Brewers over Labor Day weekend, but not sure if either of those are doable without a car.

I relied heavily on public transit when I could. Seattle, San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego, Chicago, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Denver, Phoenix, Minneapolis have easy public transit between the airport and ballpark.

Tampa, Atlanta, Kansas City, Milwaukee, and Pittsburgh aren't so easy. I was actually in Miami on Labor Day and their public transit was on a holiday schedule and ran less often. 

Thanks, David!  I've been to Fenway, Yankee Stadium, Citi Field, Citizens Bank Park, and Washington Park already (all via public transit), so I'm VERY interested in your other suggestions of Seattle, San Fran/Oakland, San Diego, Chicago, Baltimore, Denver, Phoenix, and Minneapolis.

Did you take public transit between any of these stadiums as part of a multi-park trip?

I went to the Bay Area on Memorial Day weekend a few years ago. I went to a game in Seattle on Saturday and arrived in San Francisco on Sunday. I took the BART to my hotel and walked to the game. On Memorial Day I took the BART to Oakland. You can take public transit to go from Wrigley to US Cellular. 

That sounds great.  Thanks for sharing your experience!


We've been able to take some form of public transportation in NYC, baltimor, Philly, Oakland/San Fran, Chicago, Boston and DC.

For Coors and Target fields we didn't take public transportation, but stayed in walking distance of the stadiums. But I've used Denver's transit system in the past, and it's decent.

For LA/anaheim, Milwaukee and Pittsburgh we rented cars, they didn't really seem like a pedestrian friendly cities.

Thanks for sharing, Tova!  This is great information.
