Fans will finally be able to attend games at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood this season starting with the Chargers-Rams pre-season opener on Saturday, August 14.

Go Metro to SoFi Stadium by connecting to Metro’s SoFi Stadium Shuttle bus service at the C Line (Green) Hawthorne/Lennox Station. The bus will operate during SoFi’s three pre-season games and all regular season Chargers and Rams games.

Service will run every five to eight minutes beginning about three three hours before kick-off and then as needed during the games. After the games, service will run for about 1.5 hours. The SoFi Stadium Shuttle is FREE, but normal fares apply on Metro Rail and for parking at Metro Park & Ride stations.

To catch the shuttle, exit towards east end of Hawthorne/Lennox Station. The bus will use the shuttle zone at SoFi Stadium at the corner of Prairie and Arbor Vitae.

Some riding tips:

•Download the TAP App or load your TAP card with round-trip fare before the game to avoid lines at TAP vending machines after the game.

•Use the Transit app to plan your trips on Metro and other local transit systems. The app can be downloaded for Apple smartphones and for Android smartphones.

•Please keep in mind that Metro will have ongoing weekend closures on the A and E Lines in downtown L.A. through October. It’s easiest to park somewhere along the C Line if headed to the game.

Here’s a list of park-and-ride lots on Metro Rail — including the C Line — and on the G Line (Orange) and J Line (Silver). Some stations are free, others charge a $3 daily fee to park. The below video explains how to pay and you can download the smartphone app for Apple phones and for Android devices.

The following Metro Bus lines also offer regular service to SoFi Stadium and operate all year long: Metro Bus Line 115 (Manchester Ave.), Line 117 (Century Blvd.) and Line 212 (La Brea/Prairie). Get arrival info and more by planning your trip with Transit app.

Beginning Sept. 12, GTrans will offer its Line 7X Stadium Express bus service to Inglewood Sports and Entertainment District and SoFi Stadium out of Harbor Gateway Transit Center every Sunday. For more info visit ridegtrans.com.

  1. I honestly don’t know if I can say enough about this stadium. It is unlike any others I have ever been to. It blew me away with the layout of the concessions, the unique bars, the many many restrooms and the ease with making your way to the proper sections. I can’t wait to go back! First concert ever in Sofi was a huge success!!!

    • Hi Gemma,

      At this time the SoFi Stadium Shuttle will only operate on NFL game days. We will update if that changes. The other bus lines listed operate daily/year round and may be an option for you if you are attending other events.

      Thank you,
