Go Metro to Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium and the Super Bowl Experience at L.A. Convention Center

After a brain-melting NFL playoffs, Super Bowl LVI between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams is coming to SoFi Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 13. In the run-up to the big game, the Super Bowl Experience Presented by Lowes for fans will be at the L.A. Convention Center on Feb. 5 (Saturday), Feb. 6 (Sunday), Feb. 10 (Thursday), Feb. 11 (Friday) and Feb. 12 (Saturday).

Taking Metro is a good option to reach both events to avoid traffic and limited parking.

Super Bowl Experience at L.A. Convention Center

The Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee and Metro are teaming up to deliver guests up to 50 percent off their admission price for the Super Bowl Experience event at the L.A. Convention Center — a unique fan experience leading up to Super Bowl LVI. 

Fans who take Metro to the Los Angeles Convention Center will receive 50% off their general admission ticket at the box office (excluding the SBXtra fast pass). Fans must show their TAP Pass at the Super Bowl Experience Presented by Lowe’s box office to receive the discount.

The L.A. Convention Center is accessible via Metro by taking the A Line (Blue) train, E Line (Expo) train or J Line (Silver) bus and exiting at Pico Station. The Convention Center is one block away on Figueroa Street. 

To plan your trip, download the Transit app or visit www.metro.net. 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

A limited number of commemorative Super Bowl TAP Cards (at right) will be available for sale at Metro Customer Centers starting Friday morning. A limited number of cards will also be available at the Metro booth at the Super Bowl Experience beginning Saturday, February 5, 2022.

Fans are highly encouraged to consider taking Metro to avoid traffic and very limited parking — the Convention Center’s West Hall, South Hall, and Venice parking garages unavailable for public parking from Friday, February 4, through Monday, February 14 (other parking options are here).

The Super Bowl Experience offers fans an authentic professional football experience, including opportunities for player autographs, photos with the Vince Lombardi trophy, interactive games, sponsor displays and giveaways, youth football shops, and the NFL Shop presented by Visa.

Fans can also reach the Convention Center via Metro Bike Share. A one-way trip is just $1.75 for every 30 minutes. Passes can be purchased  online, through taptogo.net, in the Metro Bike Share app or at any Metro Bike Share kiosk. 

Pick up a Metro Bike at any of the 160+ stations in the downtown area. The closest stations to the Convention Center are at Figueroa & Pico, Pico & Flower and Figueroa & 11th.

  1. i would highly recommend that LA Metro graphics department add the location of SoFi Stadium and the Shuttle Bus route so potential riders can visualize the connections to the Metro C line.

    • No matter the price of tickets, parking for the game is limited at the stadium and transit has certainly helped fans get to prior Super Bowls in other cities.

    • If LA metro is to succeed it needs to be a general public good, not just a welfare service for the poor. In NYC people of all walks of life take the subway because it works, problems aside. No reason why the same shouldn’t eventually be possible in LA.

    • And it’s comments like this that contribute to the stigma that “transit is only for the poor” in America.

      Maybe stop looking at Transit as a utility for the poor and rather an alternative service for all. . . That pay the fare.

  2. Why do I get the feeling the trains will be unusually clean on Super Bowl Sunday just how there’s coincidentally a lot less homeless encampments out around the So-Fi stadium all of sudden?

  3. I think temporarily opening the K Line for the Super Bowl would of been cool. Like how MTS’ Blue Line temporarily opened their UTC extension last summer

  4. Going to need to clean the trains and bump up security. Never seen filthier metro trains than LA last week.

  5. Do you have more information on how the half-off Super Bowl Experience at the Convention Center is going to work? Is it a combo-ticket or do you present your metro card at the door? Thanks! $5 parking at Crenshaw Green Line Station!? I was selling those spots for $50 last week! Just kidding . . .

    • Hi Thomas;

      Show your TAP card at the box office at LA Convention Center. Have fun. Should be a great game on the 13th.

  6. Since Paul Brown Stadium is not available, why not use Cincinnati Convention Center like they’re doing in L.A.?

  7. When will the cards be available at the Union Station customer center? I heard someone went there yesterday and the staff had no idea about the card, and from what I remember, the article said that it will be available starting Wednesday before the article was edited.

    • Hi Justin;

      Waiting to get confirmation of date. We’ll post as soon as we do on our Twitter account and update the blog.

        • Hi Justin;

          The cards will be available at the Experience while supplies last.

          • Just saw the article got updated last night! I’m heading to the East LA Customer center now! Thank you!

  8. What a joke it was at East LA.

    I was there before the opening time, and when I got in after it opened, the staff told me that they never received any of them!

    • Alright, for some weird reason, I was ONLY ABLE to get them this afternoon for some weird reason at both Union Station & East LA.
