The Rams are Super Bowl champs! A parade and rally are planned on Wednesday from the Shrine Auditorium to the L.A. Memorial Coliseum via Jefferson Boulevard and Figueroa Street — and Metro is an option to reach the area and avoid hassles with parking, traffic and street closures.
The Metro E (Expo) Line train has two convenient stations along the parade route (Jefferson/USC and Expo Park/USC) and the J (Silver) Line express bus’ 37th St/USC station is a short 5-minute walk to Figueroa St. See the map posted above..
The E Line and J Line are easily accessed by the Metro Bus and Rail system and it’s a short ride on each from downtown Los Angeles to the Expo Park area.
There are thousands of free and paid parking spaces at lots at stations on the Metro system. Please see this page to see lots by line.
We recommend using the Transit app — Metro’s official app — to plan your transit trips. Here are the links to get Transit for iPhones and for Android phones.
Customers who normally ride Metro Bus service in the area should take Metro Rail where possible to avoid traffic delays and detours attributed to event road closures.
•Pay Before You Board. For a limited time, Metro’s all-day pass is only $3.50 — use the day pass throughout the Metro Rail system and if traveling round-trip to avoid extra fares for the J Line. Fares include transfers to other Metro lines for up to 2 hours.
•Pay Metro fares with a TAP card — they can be purchased from TAP vending machines at all Metro Rail stations. Tap Your Card on the turnstile or validator when boarding trains and buses.
•You can also use your smart phone as a TAP card. Download the TAP App (it’s available in the Apple App Store here and Google Play store here) to avoid long lines at TAP vending machines before and after the parade.
•Use one TAP card per person only. TAP cards cannot be shared; each person must have their own TAP card.
•If you are transferring from Metrolink, your commuter rail fare is valid for all-day travel on Metro Rail by using your QR code at selected turnstiles.
•Riders are required to wear face masks! Please do not travel if you are sick.
•Small coolers and picnic baskets are okay to bring on board, but please keep aisles clear.
•Eating or drinking while in stations or on board Metro buses and trains is not permitted.

I’m sorry but a tedious 4.5 hour roundtrip on Metro from the West Valley to downtown LA is ludicrous. Get back to me when you have a rail system that people can actually use.
