LOS ANGELES – Metrolink is providing a modified schedule with special trains for Rose Parade attendees to connect to Pasadena on New Year's Day, Jan. 1, 2024. Early-morning trains on five Metrolink lines will connect passengers to L. A. Union Station where the Metro A Line offers direct service to the parade route. Three afternoon Metrolink trains have also been added for more convenient return service.
In addition to the special schedule, Metrolink is offering riders the budget-friendly $10 Holiday Pass, which can be used for unlimited trips on the day of purchase and allows riders to transfer for free to the Metro A Line (to Azusa) for easy access to Pasadena before and after the parade.
Metrolink’s amended Jan. 1 train schedule adds early-morning trains on the Ventura County, Orange County and 91/Perris Valley lines and adjusted earlier departure times for the day’s first trains on the Antelope Valley and San Bernardino lines, allowing parade-goers to arrive at L.A. Union Station between 7 and 7:25 a.m. for a timely transfer to the Metro A Line.
To better accommodate the parade goers, Metrolink has added a special afternoon train on the Ventura County, Orange County and 91/Perris Valley lines, providing event attendees earlier train options for their return trip to complement the regular Metrolink schedule.
