Parking at the Zoo costs $10 per vehicle for General Admission guests. Parking is free for Zoo Members.
We encourage guests to purchase (GA) or reserve (Members) parking online, in advance, while purchasing or reserving admission tickets.
Upon arrival, you will be asked to present your pre-purchased or pre-reserved parking ticket. If you do not have a parking ticket when you arrive, you will be directed to the Zoo’s Lower Entrance to purchase or reserve parking.
We encourage our guests to alleviate traffic and parking challenges around the Zoo by taking public transportation or ride-share services.
You can take the AC Transit Bus line 46 to the zoo. This line stops at Oakland Zoo hourly, roughly between 9:00am and 6:30pm daily. For exact times please visit the 46 Line schedule page on AC Transit's website.
