Hankering for some more Space Shuttle Endeavour? Head to Expo Park this Saturday evening to be a part of its last mission ever and welcome the space shuttle home.

Expo Park will be the only mass viewing area for the shuttle. Endeavour fans should gather around 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 along Bill Robertson Lane. And make sure to ride the Expo Line there as no cars will be allowed into the park. Both the Expo/Vermont Station and Expo Park/USC Station will drop you off a short walk from the official shuttle route.

The Expo Line will run at 6 minute headways from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, and the Red, Purple and Gold lines will also run enhanced service. To make the trip easier on yourself, load up your TAP card before Endeavour starts to move.

Bus service in the areas along the shuttle route will experience disruptions during the Endeavour trip. Service detours are planned along Manchester Boulevard on Friday night and Crenshaw Boulevard and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on Saturday. For the most up-to-date service alerts, visit Metro’s website, follow @metroLAalerts on Twitter or check back here on the Source. We’ll be posting more on Endeavour bus detours in a day or so.

Other places to catch the shuttle on Saturday are The Forum in Inglewood and the intersection in front of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.
