It's going to cost more to tailgate at Bears games this season.

Parking passes at Soldier Field's north garage, south lot, Waldron Deck and at Adler Planetarium will go up $3 to about $49 plus service fees.

A spokesperson for the company that manages Soldier Field tells the Chicago Tribune that the increase is mostly due to the city's higher tax on parking lot operators.
