Queen Bey’s first Formation World Tour stop in the L.A. area is this Saturday, May 14, at the Rose Bowl. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the concert is expected to end around 11 p.m.

If you’re heading to the Rose Bowl for some Lemonade, expect lots of traffic and difficulty finding parking. So why not leave the car at home and Go Metro instead? 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 from the Parson’s parking lot at the corner of Union/De Lacey Street, a short walk from the station. Shuttles start running three hours prior to start of the show. Return trips from the stadium to Old Pasadena will run until one hour after the concert ends. The cost of a round-trip shuttle ride is $5 per person.

One-way fare on Metro Rail is $1.75 and includes 2 hours of free transfers to other Metro lines with TAP card. The Metro Gold Line connects to the Red, Purple and Silver Line at Union Station. If you’re looking to park and ride, you can park at Union Station for $8, or for free at many stations along the Gold Line, including Sierra Madre Villa Station in eastern Pasadena and the new Gold Line stations in Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa. Parking is available first-come, first-served. At 900 spaces, Sierra Madre Villa has the largest parking structure and is a short train ride to Memorial Park.

We also recommend loading your TAP card with return fare in advance or purchasing a $7 Day Pass (good through 3 a.m.). This will save you from long lines at the TAP vending machines on your way home.
