---- — Visitors to Cooperstown for the 2013 Induction Weekend, including the Saturday, July 27 Awards Presentation and the Sunday, July 28 Induction Ceremony, are advised to utilize several parking and transportation options in an effort to alleviate potential delays and traffic problems.
Travelers are advised to allow plenty of time to find parking and transportation to the following points close to the Induction. Because of its small size – with a year-round population of about 2,000 residents and just one traffic light – Cooperstown will fill up quickly during Hall of Fame Weekend. Parking arrangements detailed below will be in place for Saturday and Sunday.
Three trolley lots, located just outside the village limits and color-coded in red, blue and yellow, are available for those visitors in the immediate Cooperstown village area. Parking in these lots is free, and a trolley ticket good for unlimited daily transportation costs $2 for adults. Children 5 and younger will ride free, and the trolley service will operate from 8:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily all weekend.
Parking spots in these lots are limited. Trolleys will run only from the lots to regular stops in the village. Trolleys will not run to and from the Induction site. Hall of Fame shuttle service will provide free shuttle buses from Doubleday Field to the Induction site, with continuous service from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then resuming at the conclusion of the Induction Ceremony. Shuttles will not run during the Induction Ceremony.

The Induction Ceremony takes place at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday on the grounds of the Clark Sports Center, one mile south of the Hall of Fame on Susquehanna Avenue. Admission to the Induction Ceremony is free.
The museum maintains the following Hall of Fame Weekend hours: Friday, July 26: 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.; Saturday, July 27: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Sunday, July 28: 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. For Hall of Fame members, doors open at 7 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
