Take Metro Gold Line + the Parsons' shuttle to see Jay-Z and Bey at the Rose Bowl this weekend


Jay-Z and Beyonce are performing at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena this Saturday and Sunday, August 2 and 3, as part of their “On the Run” tour. And to those of you lucky enough to have tickets to the sold-out show, this is just a friendly reminder that you can go Metro to the concert!

To get to the show, take the Metro Gold Line to Memorial Park Station in Old Pasadena and complete your trip with a shuttle ride to the stadium.

Shuttles to the Rose Bowl will depart approximately every 5 minutes from the Parson’s parking lot at the corner of Union/De Lacey Street, four blocks southwest of the station. Shuttles will run from 2 p.m. through show time. Return trips from the stadium to Old Pasadena will run until 90 minutes after the concert ends. The cost of a round-trip shuttle ride is $10 per person.

A final FYI for Gold Line customers attending “On the Run” or HARD Summer this weekend: load your return fare in advance. Purchasing a $5 Day Pass (good through 3 a.m.) or loading an extra $1.50 on your TAP card at your departure station will save you from long lines at the TAP vending machines on your way home.

Metro hopes all concert-goers have a great time this weekend. We’ll see you on the Metro Gold Line, thanks for riding!

  1. I’d like to take the Blue Line as well. Do you know if this one will be running late as well?

  2. I know that Sunday nights, the trains don’t run as late as on the weekends. Do you have any estimates of how long it might take to get back to the station via the shuttle? Thank you!

    • Hi Bridget,

      Due to HARD Summer, Metro Rail will be operating on Saturday schedule, which means trains will run until 2 a.m. The Rose Bowl shuttle trip can be up to 30 minutes depending on stadium traffic. Hope this helps!
