Reminder: take the Gold Line to BCS National Championship tomorrow

Metro is providing extra service on the Gold Line tomorrow to make it easier and cheaper for college football fans to get to the 2010 BCS National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl on January 7th.

Before and after the game (which starts at 5:00 p.m.), Gold Line service will run as frequently as every seven to 10 minutes. Football fans should get off the train at the Memorial Park Station and follow the signage to Parsons (on the corner of Fair Oaks and Holly Street, here’s a map) to catch a shuttle bus to the Rose Bowl Stadium. Shuttles will run continuously from 1:00 p.m. until approximately two hours after the game.

If the speed and comfort of the Gold Line isn’t enough to get you on board, consider this: if you drive to Pasadena and want to park at Parson to take the shuttle to the game it’ll set you back $40. A Metro Day Pass is $5. Plus, with Metro driving you can use that money you saved to buy a few more game day beverages guilt-free.
