Know Before You Go
*2017 Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics Playoffs*
Guests are asked to plan ahead and allow for extra time when arriving due to increased security measures for playoffs. As a reminder, all entry doors at TD Garden are outfitted with walk-through metal detection systems where fans will be screened prior to entry. Fans are encouraged to keep the following in mind before they arrive at the arena entrance:
- Minimize the number of personal items you bring. Bags, backpacks, purses larger than a wristlet, laptops, tablets, professional cameras or weapons of any kind are strictly prohibited. Click HERE for a full list of prohibited items.
- Have your ticket out and ready to be scanned when approaching turnstiles.
- Remove all items from your clothing and belongings that may trigger an alarm prior to being screened.
- All fans will be subject to random secondary searches at entry.
For Bruins and Celtics games, Premium doors open two hours prior to the scheduled game time and all general doors open one hour prior (unless otherwise specifically noted).
For concerts and events, all doors open one hour prior to the event time unless otherwise specifically noted.
For a more convenient way to enter TD Garden, we recommend entering with a mobile ticket. Get instructions on how to view or transfer your mobile tickets.

Parking is Available at the TD Garden
The most convenient parking for every show is the North Station Garage, located directly underneath the TD Garden. It offers a flat event rate when you enter 2.5 hours prior to the event start time. Elevators are located in the parking garage and will bring you directly to the main concourse in North Station.
Important Pedestrian and Traffic Flow Updates
Please keep in mind when travelling to the arena that the development, ‘The Hub on Causeway’, located directly in front of TD Garden on Causeway Street is currently under construction. A number of changes around Causeway Street have gone into effect that alter the pedestrian and traffic flow in the area.
New Security Measures
All entry doors at TD Garden are now outfitted with new state-of-the-art walk-through metal detection systems where fans will be screened prior to entry. Guests are strongly encouraged to plan ahead and allow adequate time for entry.
