Bills Announce New Policy for Bus and Limo Parking Lots

'Tailgate Village' Aimed at Clamping Down on Fan Behavior

Orchard Park, NY (WBEN) - The Buffalo Bills have announced changes to the Bus and Limo parking lot outside of New Era Field in an attempt to clamp down on unruly fan behavior.

The revised policy from the team states that fans who attend games by way of bus or limo bus will no longer be allowed to tailgate near their vehicle. Instead, they will be made to opt into one of several tailgating options available in the new “Tailgate Village.”

The new policy will come with new charges. A 12 to 20 person bus will be charged $300, then $600 for a 40-passenger vehicle, and it will be $900 for a 60 person bus. The fees, which average an additional $15 per passenger, will have to be paid in advance of a parking pass being issued.

Once inside Tailgate Village, each group of fans will receive a tent, tables and chairs as well as help with setup. Fans can choose to purchase buffet options at an additional cost, or bring their own food and drink. However, consumption of food and beverages will only be allowed inside the vehicle, or in the "Tailgate Village" zone.

“It’s great. There is so much opportunity for responsible tailgating,” said Bills VP of of Operations and Guest Experience Andy Major through a statement on the team's website. “The Buffalo Bills have some of the best fans in the NFL. Some of them, we have had issues with in the Bus and Limo Lot in the past and we just want to clean that up and make it safer. Tailgate Village will be another safe and fun option for fans to enjoy the pregame atmosphere.”

For buses and limo buses that are not tailgating, the cost to park will remain the same as last year at $100.
