The Celebration of Life for Kobe and Gianna event begins at 10 a.m. Monday at Staples Center with doors opening at 8 a.m. Officials are recommending those with tickets arrive early and plan ahead to avoid downtown L.A. traffic.
Metro’s A Line (Blue) and E Line (Expo) both stop at Pico Station, which is a five-minute walk to Staples Center. Those taking the B Line (Red) or D Line (Purple) subway should transfer to the A and E Lines at 7th/Metro Station and exit at Pico Station. Many Metro Bus Lines also stop near Staples Center. See the map below; all bus line maps and timetables are here.
To ride Metro buses and trains, please load your fare on reloadable TAP cards, which are available at all Metro Rail, G Line (Orange) and J Line (Silver) stations.
The regular Metro fare is $1.75 each way with two hours of transfers are included. We recommend loading $3.50 in stored value when purchasing a card — $3.50 is enough for a round-trip ride. More info about Metro fares is here.
All regularly-scheduled Metrolink commuter rail lines will operate Monday, with connections from Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange counties.
