TD Garden Ushers in a New Era of Seamless Security with Evolv Technology

New Security Screening Experience Both Secures Arena and Reduces Queues at Entrance

TD Garden, New England’s premier sports and entertainment arena and home of the storied NHL’s Boston Bruins and NBA’s Boston Celtics, today announced a partnership with Evolv Technology, the leading security technology company pioneering AI-based detection tools to create safer experiences. This collaboration brings Evolv Express® to TD Garden, implementing a frictionless and secure security screening experience for all guests. The new entry experience will begin on February 17, 2024.

“TD Garden is committed to providing a best-in-class experience for our guests, and safety and security is paramount,” said Glen Thornborough, President of TD Garden and COO of Boston Bruins. “Evolv’s innovative technology allows us to do just that, while also streamlining the entry process and minimizing wait times.”

Evolv has revolutionized security and the ease with which people gather for events by replacing traditional metal detectors with advanced screeners that provide a better, faster, and safer experience. Evolv’s Express system utilizes advanced AI and sensor technology to screen guests as they walk through security at the pace of life. Guests simply walk through a sleek and modern screening lane, eliminating the need for guests to stop and have personal effects such as mobile phones and wallets checked. This not only enhances security but also creates a more positive and efficient experience for everyone.

To ensure safety and a swifter entry process, TD Garden strongly discourages guests from bringing bags to events. No bags larger than 6” x 4” x 1.5” will be permitted into the arena. Guests with non-complying bags can store their items for a fee at The Mobile Locker Company located on Legends Way. The Mobile Locker Company will be available for all events 2 hours prior to event start time and close 1.5 hours after the event concludes. Items must be retrieved from The Mobile Locker Company on the same day.

Since the launch of Evolv Express in 2019, Evolv has screened more than 1 billion people. Evolv’s technology can be found in leading theme parks, sports stadiums, performing arts centers, casinos and arenas in addition to hundreds of schools, hospitals and places of worship. Evolv is committed to making the world a safer place to live, learn, work and play.
