Getting to the Rose Bowl Game
Take the Metro A Line (formerly Gold Line) to Memorial Park Station in Pasadena. Follow the signs for two blocks to the CFP Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game pick-up location at Parsons Parking Lot. The free bus shuttle will take you directly to the Rose Bowl Stadium. After the game, simply reverse your route. (For help planning your MTA trip, call (323) 466-3876 or visit metro.net).
It’s also possible to walk to the stadium from the A Line’s Memorial Park Station. It’s about 1.5 to 2 miles each way (depending on which gate you enter the stadium) and downhill to the stadium and uphill on the way back.
