LOS ANGELES – People attending the 3rd Annual Women’s March LA can avoid traffic congestion and parking headaches by using Metrolink service on Saturday, Jan. 19 with additional trains offered on the Antelope Valley, San Bernardino and Ventura County lines for greater convenience.
Women’s March LA is scheduled from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles. Attendance at last year’s march was estimated at 600,000, and organizers anticipate a similar turnout on Saturday.
“This is the second year that Metrolink has supported Women’s March LA with special train service,” said Metrolink CEO Stephanie Wiggins. “Metrolink riders save money with the $10 Weekend Day pass and avoid traffic and parking problems in the downtown area.”
