Metro’s partnership with Los Angeles-based Canon is a unique opportunity to promote public transit and draw attention to environmental concerns through Canon’s music by rewarding Metro patrons with a free evening of entertainment in a distinctive, transit friendly venue. At the concert the band will debut “The Hourglass,” a song dedicated to raising environmental awareness.

“We are honored to have been chosen by Metro to help raise awareness on alternative, more efficient ways to protect our environment through our music. About 5.7 billion gallons of fuel are wasted due to congestion in the United States’ largest cities. More and more commuters are realizing that Metro is the way to go not only to save time and money but to protect our planet,” said Jason Turbin, Canon’s front man.

It’s easy to get to Union Station on Metro and Metrolink. The Metro Red, Purple and Gold Lines, numerous Metro buses, and Metrolink trains culminate at Union Station. For customized routing information use the Metro Trip Planner at www.metro.net or call 1-800-C-O-M-M-U-T-E.
