The Abilities Expo is free to the public, but registration is required at the door. To get to the convention center, take the Metro A Line (Blue) or E Line (Expo) to Pico Station or the J Line (Silver) to Figueroa/Pico. Check our Trip Planner for more routes and connections.

All of Metro’s buses and trains are accessible and ADA-compliant; Metro currently boards more than 100,000 passengers using wheelchairs per month — the most in the nation. Metro also offers reduced fares to passengers with disabilities, and riders with current Access Service ID cards may ride Metro Bus and Rail at no cost.
