Metrolink Adding Train Service for Los Angeles Rams Home Games
Fans can skip traffic and parking by taking public transportation for only $10
Los Angeles - All aboard the Rams Train! Metrolink is kicking off special train service to all Los Angeles Rams' home games during the 2016-2017 season, starting on Sept. 18. For only $10 per round-trip, football fans can skip the traffic and parking by taking public transportation to the game.
The special train service will be added on Metrolink's Antelope Valley, San Bernardino, Orange County and 91/Perris Valley lines to ensure that fans across Southern California can enjoy a stress-free, affordable ride to and from the game.
"There's no faster, more convenient and affordable way to get to and from the game," said Metrolink Board Chairman Shawn Nelson. "We hope our current riders enjoy this special service, but we also want to attract new riders who don't realize how easy it is to ride Metrolink."
Funded by Metrolink's member agencies, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) and Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), the special trains will supplement existing weekend service to make sure fans get to the game on time and have a safe, convenient affordable ride home.
To get a seat on the Rams Train, riders should purchase a Weekend Day Pass ticket out of a ticket vending machine. (At this time, Metrolink App tickets are not accepted due to the required transfer on the Metro Rail system.) Riders will then take Metrolink to Los Angeles Union Station then transfer to Metro's Red or Purple Line and then transfer at the 7th and Metro station to the Expo Line, which drops fans off at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
After the game, riders will take the Expo Line back to the 7th and Metro stop on the Red or Purple Line, then take it to Union Station to board Metrolink. The $10 cost of the round-trip ticket includes free transfers to Metro.
On Oct. 9, there will be no special service on the Orange County and 91/PV lines due annual maintenance. Aside from this exception, Metrolink's AV, OC, 91/PV and SB lines will offer special service to and from all Rams home games.
