Commute to the Super Bowl Experience and Super Bowl LVI using Transit

The Superbowl is coming to Los Angeles! LADOT and ur partners at Metro have got you covered for the most convenient and cost-effective ways to access the upcoming Super Bowl LVI activities in both downtown Los Angeles and Inglewood. We are working in partnership with the Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee on a comprehensive plan to get fans to the Super Bowl LVI activities.

For a regular commute using the major Metro lines, LA Convention Center can be accessed using Downtown DASH as well as Metro's A Line (Blue) train, E Line (Expo) train, and J Line (Silver) bus to arrive at Pico Station, from there the Convention Center is just one block away.

Parking at the SoFi Stadium for game day, Sunday, February 13 will be extremely limited. Due to this, LADOT and Metro will be providing free bus shuttle services as part of a broader shuttle service plan along with park and ride shuttle options, staffed taxi, and rideshare assigned sections too.

Parking options are listed at the Superbowl LVI parking website.

Metro will be running the free bus shuttle service between the C Line (Green) Hawthorne/Lennox Station and the stadium on game day. Metro shuttle buses will run every five to eight minutes from Hawthorne/Lennox Station beginning at 10:45 a.m. to the Super Bowl, with player introductions and national anthem at 3 p.m. Buses will operate frequently for 90 minutes after the game ends. Shuttle buses are free. Although, regular transit fares will apply on all other Metro buses and trains.

For more information, please visit the Metro webpage on commuting to Super Bowl LVI activities.

Through Kiana's outreach efforts, our report identified areas where our transit network can better support women and prioritize equity in transportation planning and design. Check out Kiana's remarks at LADOT's press conference unveiling the Changing Lanes report.
