Go Metro to the L.A. Rams’ Games!
August 2, 2016
Go Metro to the L.A. Rams Fan Fest this August 6th at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and to all upcoming L.A. Rams preseason and regular season football games!
Los Angeles Rams fans are encouraged to use the Metro bus and rail system to get to the upcoming Rams Fan Fest this Saturday, Aug. 6 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, as well as to all upcoming Rams preseason and regular season football games.
Due to limited parking available in and around the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Metro Expo Line is a great connection to the venue via Expo Park/USC station or Expo/Vermont station adjacent to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
To make travel more convenient for fans, Metro will add service to the Expo Line on game days to run every six minutes instead of every 12 minutes. The additional service will be offered two hours before and after the game.
The public is reminded to purchase a $3.50 round-trip fare at the beginning of trips to avoid lines when the games are over. Each person, including children over the age of 5, must have a valid TAP card and remember to tap before each boarding. In addition, when leaving the Coliseum, signage will be provided to direct those who are going toward Santa Monica to board at Expo Park/USC Station, and those going into downtown Los Angeles to board trains at Expo/Vermont Station.
The Metro Expo Line can be easily accessed via the Metro Rail system with connections at 7th Street/Metro Center in downtown Los Angeles to the Metro Red/Purple lines, and at Pico Station to the Metro Blue line. Fans using the Metro Gold Line can make an easy transfer at Union Station to the Metro Red/Purple lines for a connection to the Expo Line. Enhanced service will also be provided on the Metro Red/Purple and Gold lines during game days.
Parking is available at the North Hollywood Red Line Station and the Universal City/Studio City Red Line Station in the San Fernando Valley, as well as many Gold Line stations, including APU/Citrus College, Azusa Downtown, Irwindale, Duarte/City of Hope, Monrovia, Arcadia and Sierra Madre Villa in East Pasadena, Fillmore in Pasadena, Heritage Square, Lincoln/Cypress, Indiana in Boyle Heights and Atlantic in East Los Angeles. Additional parking is also available at several station locations along the Expo Line, including La Cienega/Jefferson, Culver City, Expo/Sepulveda, Expo/Bundy, 26th Street/Bergamot and 17th Street/SMC. For the Metro Green Line, ample parking is available at nearly all stations between Norwalk and Redondo Beach.
Those fans coming from the San Gabriel Valley or the South Bay area can use the Metro Silver Line, with parking available at either Harbor Gateway Transit Center or El Monte Bus Station. Customers can exit at 37th Street/USC station along the I-110 Express Lanes and walk a few blocks to the Coliseum via Flower Street. Roundtrip fare on the Silver Line is just $5 and each person must have a valid TAP card to ride the Silver Line. TAP vending machines are available at both Harbor Gateway Transit Center and El Monte Bus Station.
For a safer environment and speedier entry, there is a new Coliseum clear bag policy this year. Fans are advised not to bring bags unless in a clear plastic see-through bag. Prohibited are all back packs, purses, fanny packs, camera cases, binocular cases, etc. You can find more details at Be Clear On Game Day Safety.
With the opening of the Gold Line extension to Azusa and the Expo Line Extension to Santa Monica earlier this year, Metro now operates 105 miles of Metro Rail throughout the county and fans are urged to use both Metro trains and buses to the Coliseum.
