All aboard for nature! Go Metro to the great outdoors on National Public Lands Day, Sept. 28. Nature for All has multiple transit trips planned all around L.A. County!
Start the day at the morning festival at Union Station from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Enjoy free activities for all ages, music, an education fair and more. Get to Union Station via the Gold, Red, Purple or Silver Line, Metro Bus or Metrolink. Plan your trip at metro.net.
Then head to the mountain, beach or park! You can plan your own trip, or sign up for a guided trip. Guided transit trips take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. — be sure to RSVP as spaces are limited. All participants will need to have their own TAP card, and we advise you to load $3.50 in stored value in advance for a roundtrip ride.
