Getting to the Rose Bowl Game
Take the L Line to Memorial Park Station in Pasadena; then it’s just a short walk to Parsons Parking Lot B for the free bus shuttle that drops you off next to the stadium. The shuttle service begins at 10 a.m. on Jan. 2 and runs until two hours after the game.
It’s also possible to walk to the stadium from the L 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.
L Line rail service begins at Union Station around 4:00 am on Monday, Jan. 2, and the parade starts at 8 a.m. The map shows the Rose Parade route and the L (Gold) Line.
The L (Gold) Line stations closest to the Rose Parade route are:
- Del Mar Station (walk .3 miles north to the parade route on Colorado Boulevard)
- Memorial Park Station (walk .2 miles south to parade route on Colorado Blvd.)
- Lake Station (walk .4 miles south to parade route on Colorado Blvd.)
- Allen Station (walk .4 miles south to parade route on Colorado Blvd.)
A regular single-trip fare on Metro is $1.75 — or $3.50 round-trip — and includes two hours of free transfers.
