Party people listen up, Metro has partnered with HARD Events to provide extended late night service on the Red and Gold Lines on Saturday, August 6 for the HARD Summer Music Festival 2011.
The festival – featuring acts including Chromeo, Ratatat and Odd Future – takes place at the Los Angeles Historic State Park in Chinatown, steps away from the Chinatown Gold Line Station. Parking is limited and will likely be expensive, so HARD recommends going Metro to the event.
Metro will be running Red and Gold Line trains until just after the show ends around 2am. Other Metro rail lines will not be running extended schedules, so plan accordingly if you are connecting via the Blue or Green Lines.
Metro has set up a helpful page for the extended service that will be updated with any changes, so be sure to check it out here. In addition, you can follow @MetroLosAngeles and @MetroLAalerts on Twitter for any updates.
And since this will be a party, it’s important to remember a few rules while riding the train:
- No eating, drinking allowed while riding Metro.
- To ensure public safety, Metro prohibits oversized items such as ladders, umbrellas, tents, chairs and coolers.
- And, be respectful of other riders.
But most of all, have fun and take advantage of the extra service!
