The Rose Queen, that is. Metro officials, 2014 Rose Queen Ana Marie Acosta and her lady princesses gathered at Los Angeles Union Station this morning to encourage folks to take advantage of the free rides on New Year’s Eve and the 24-hour Metro Rail service to go to the Rose Parade.
Metro is the best way to get to Pasadena for the Tournament of Roses parade, the Rose Bowl game and post-parade float-viewing at Victory Park. And here are a few tips for those ready to ride:
- don’t walk on or near the train tracks
- look carefully for trains coming from both directions
- always wait for rail crossing gates to close and reopen before crossing an intersection
- do not bring any flammable liquids, barbeques, fold-out chairs, ladders, large ice chests or coolers on board trains
So ring in the new year with good times, not with flashing lights in your rearview mirror. Go Metro and be safe everyone!
