Go Metro and Metrolink to watch Rams hogtie Cowboys on Saturday!

The ninth all-time meeting between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams in the NFL playoffs takes place this Saturday at 5:15 p.m. at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which is conveniently located near the Expo Line and Silver Line. Metrolink commuter rail is also adding late-night trains on the Antelope Valley, Orange County and San Bernardino Lines from Union Station — which is a short subway ride to the Expo Line.

Below are maps of the area around the Coliseum and the Metro system map. Paid and free parking is available at many Metro stations. Parking at Union Station is $8 and there are, of course, many commercial lots in DTLA near the Metro system. Everything you need to know is below:

Note: Orange County Line trains will only operate between the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo and L.A. Union Station on Saturday, Jan. 12 due to a track closure for a scheduled maintenance project. More information here.

    Maybe you need a new map of Exposition Park. Pretty certain the LA Memorial Sports Arena is now something else.

    Go Rams! Although I still hate the previous ownership for moving them to St. Louis.
