By popular demand, we’re adding service to make it easy to travel to and from the Taylor Swift concerts at SoFi Stadium on Aug. 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 9.
We know that many of you haven’t traveled with us before or been to SoFi Stadium — and some of you are traveling to L.A. for the shows. Everything you need to know to Go Metro to the Eras Tour is below.
Trains will be running until about 2 a.m. so everyone can get home! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that planning your trip ahead of time using Google Maps, Apple Maps, the Transit app, the Moovit app and our metro.net website.
How to Get to SoFi Stadium
There are three easy ways to get to and from SoFi on Metro:
1) Take the K Line to the Downtown Inglewood Station and ride our free bus shuttle to SoFi. The shuttle will run 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. before each show. The shuttle will run for 90 minutes after the concert ends.
This option is best for fans coming from the Westside, Eastside, Central LA and points north. Take the E Line to Expo/Crenshaw Station and transfer to the K Line across the street.
If coming from the San Fernando Valley, take the B Line to the E Line. If coming from the San Gabriel Valley, take the A Line to the E Line to the K Line.
2) Take the C Line to the Hawthorne/Lennox Station and ride our free shuttle to SoFi. The shuttle will run 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. before each show. The shuttle will run 90 minutes after the concert ends.
This option is best for fans coming from the south and east.
Orange County — take the C Line from Norwalk Station.
South Bay and El Segundo area hotels – take the C Line from Redondo Beach, Douglas, El Segundo or Mariposa stations.
Long Beach area – take the A Line to Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station and transfer to the C Line.
3) Take Metro Bus Line 117 from LAX-area hotels along Century Boulevard to SoFi. Board at these stops: LAX City Bus Center, Sepulveda/Century, Century/Avion, Century/Airport, Century/International, Century/Aviation or points east. Exit at Century/Yukon for the shortest walk to SoFi. Use that stop for return trips. Bus Line 117 will run until 90 minutes after the concert.
If you’re new to our system or region, please keep in mind that our service area is HUGE. Riding to the more distant stations from SoFi can take 2+ hours. Plan ahead!

The bus shuttles from the C Line and K Line to SoFi are free.
For Metro trains or regular buses, fare is $3.50 round trip per person.
To purchase fares, download our TAP app onto your smartphone. Buy your fare, tap your phone at faregates, blue TAP validators on rail platforms or at fareboxes on buses.
You can also buy a reloadable TAP fare card for $2 from machines at Metro Rail and Busway Stations. Everyone must have their own TAP card — no sharing. To avoid waiting in line at our fare machines after the show, we encourage you to by roundtrip fare when starting your trip.
Obey all warning lights at rail crossings.
Keep an eye on your belongings.
If you need to reach Metro Security, call 888.950.SAFE (7233) or text them using our Transit Watch app. In an emergency call 911.
We’re enchanted that Taylor Swift fans have given a big boost to public transit across the United States this year — and we’re looking forward to spending our midnights with many of you very soon.
You may also recall that a certain someone filmed part of her “Delicate” video on our system — that’s 7th/Metro Station and our B/D Line subway at the 2:43 mark.
