Go Metro to Taste of Soul on Saturday


Taste of Soul, oone of L.A.'s largest street festivals, takes place this Saturday, Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Running down Crenshaw Boulevard between Stocker and Rodeo Road, visitors can sample great food from local restaurants, enjoy live entertainment and check out displays by local artists.

Metro will be there to show videos about the Crenshaw/LAX Line project, which you will – fingers crossed! – be able to take to Taste of Soul 2018.

Also, and this is important, Metro and the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy will be at the festival doing community outreach on Metro's new construction careers policy that aims to help those needing work find jobs in the building industry. There will be information available at the festival about how to enroll in union apprenticeship programs on projects such as the Crenshaw/LAX Line

Hop on the Expo Line to Expo/Crenshaw Station, then start walking south on Crenshaw until you come across a huge crowd of people. It should take you less than five minutes.

Bus lines 40, 102, 105, 210, 710 and 740 will detour from 11 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19 to 6 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21 for the festival. Signs will be posted at bus stops regarding the temporary routes, or check Metro's service advisories.
