Click above for a larger map.

We’ve posted tons on the Expo Line’s opening on Saturday, here’s a brief recap:

•Expo Line trains will be running from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday from 7th/Metro Center station in downtown Los Angeles to the La Cienega/Jefferson station. Two Expo Line stations are not opening tomorrow: Farmdale and Culver City. They should be done by summer.

•There is no charge to ride the Expo Line on Saturday and Sunday. Fares begin with service early Monday morning. Here’s the timetable Expo will use beginning Monday.

•You still must pay regular fares to ride the rest of the Metro system this weekend. A single ride on any bus or rail line is $1.50. A day pass with unlimited transfers is $5. If you don’t yet have a TAP card to pay fares, you can purchase one and load it with passes or cashes at ticket vending machines at all rail stations.

•There are events being held outside four stations on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — 7th/Metro Center, Expo Park/USC, Crenshaw and La Cienega/Jefferson. More details on the entertainment here.

•Metro is expecting big crowds wanting to ride the Expo Line this weekend. There will likely be lines at some stations. Best bet to avoid lines is to ride early in the morning.

  1. I got to go on a test run. The line is marvelous. I cannot wait for this to be extended all the way to Santa Monica in a few years.
