    • Hi Person,

      There are no Metro buses that serve the event center, but Foothill Transit 492 has a stop in the area and they also accept TAP. However, the limited edition poster can only be claimed at L.A. Live so we’re encouraging more people to attend the competitions in downtown on Metro.

  1. Dont forget to catch the XGames Concerts this weekend too! Awaolnation with Madeon and Pepper at Irwindale Events Center! And The Presets with Tanlines and other awesome performers at CLub Nokia! Going to be a great weekend!

  2. You can takeMetro Local 270 on Aug 1-3. Get off at Live Oak/Peck and walk to Irwindale Event Center or transfer to FT 492 and get off at Live Oak/Rivergrade to walk back towards the event.

    You can also take Metro Local 78 to eastbound terminal(Longden/Myrtle) and walk or transfer to FT 492 to event. Metro Local 78 operates on Sunday,August 4th.

    • Great tips, Thomas! I do wish the Irwindale Event Center were more transit friendly as it’s the future home of all X Games events…perhaps by next year, it will be.
