LAFC’s home opener is this Sunday, March 3 at Banc of California Stadium, and the best way to get there — and for every match this season — is via the Expo Line, Silver Line or Metro Bus 81.
•Take the Expo Line to Expo Park/USC Station. From there it’s a five- to 10-minute walk through Exposition Park’s Rose Garden and past the California Science Museum.
•If you’re coming from the South Bay, consider taking the Silver Line to the 37th Street Transitway Station.
•Metro Bus 81 to 39th/Figueroa is another option — the 81 runs between Eagle Rock, DTLA and South Los Angeles.
Please note that CicLAvia — Culver City meets Mar Vista + Palms is also taking place this Sunday, so trains may be a little extra crowded as CicLAvia attendees returning home meet those heading to the match.
Plan ahead and avoid long lines at TAP vending machines by loading fare or a pass on your TAP card before you start your trip. A round-trip ride is $3.50 in Stored Value, and a Metro Day Pass is $7.
