Go Metro to the NFC title game between the Rams and 49ers!

It should be a great game between longtime rivals. To beat traffic and avoid parking hassles, Metro is once again offering our free SoFi Stadium Shuttle Bus between the C (Green) Line train’s Hawthorne/Lennox Station and SoFi Stadium.

The C Line train runs between Norwalk and Redondo Beach. From Downtown Los Angeles, riders can reach the C Line by taking either the J Line (Silver) express bus and transferring to the C Line at Harbor Freeway Station or taking the A Line (Blue) train and transferring to the C Line at Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station.

To plan your trip to the game, Metro suggests that riders download Transit app, Metro’s official app or visit metro.net.

Before the game: Shuttle service will run every 5-8 minutes roughly 3 hours before kick-off.

During the game: Shuttles will depart SoFi to the Metro C Line Hawthorne/Lennox Station as needed.

After the game: Shuttle service will run roughly 1.5 hours after each game.

The SoFi Stadium Shuttle is FREE, but normal fares apply for regular Metro Bus and Rail service.

To plan your trip to the game, Metro suggests that riders download Transit app, Metro’s official app.

There is also parking available at Metro Park & Ride lots along the C Line and at Harbor Gateway Transit Center in Gardena and adjacent to the 110 freeway.

  • Hawthorne/Lennox – sold out for Sunday’s game.
  • Crenshaw – $5 on-site
  • Aviation – $7 on-site
  • Norwalk – FREE
  • Redondo Beach – FREE
  • Harbor Gateway Transit Center – FREE

Regular fares on Metro are $1.75 and include two hours of free transfers. To pay your fare, TAP cards can be purchased from TAP vending machines at all Metro Rail stations. Riders can also use their smartphones as a TAP card by downloading the TAP app, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store

  1. Does SoFi and/or Inglewood have a bus lane or other system set up so the shuttles have quick access to the stadium and that they don’t get stuck in traffic? I haven’t been to the stadium for a football game yet and I haven’t tried it. If the shuttle could make it in 10 minutes or so it would be a great way to promote the Green Line to people who might not have used it before.

    • Hi Thomas;

      No formal bus lane. The bus trip itself in recent weeks has typically taken 10 to 15 minutes. There might also be a wait of a few minutes to board the bus at both Hawthorne/Lennox and the stadium.
