Connect to L.A. Metro’s Free Shuttle Buses
Go Metro for the most seamless access to upcoming Super Bowl LVI activities in both downtown Los Angeles and Inglewood. The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will play a key role in a comprehensive plan with the Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee to get fans to the Super Bowl Experience and the big game this year.
Fans who take Metro to attend the Super Bowl Experience at the Los Angeles Convention Center will receive 50 percent off their general admission ticket when purchased at the box office (excluding the SBXtra fast pass). Fans must show their TAP card at the Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s box office to receive the “walk up only” discount at the time of purchase. Full details are available at www.superbowl.com, through the NFL OnePass app or on www.metro.net/gameday.
The LA Convention Center is accessible via Metro by taking the A Line (Blue) train, E Line (Expo) train or J Line (Silver) bus and exiting at Pico Station. The Convention Center is just one block away on Figueroa Street.
For gameday, parking onsite at SoFi Stadium on Sunday, February 13 will be extremely limited. Metro will be providing free bus shuttle service as part of a broader shuttle service plan. Additionally, there will be park and ride shuttle options, staffed taxi and rideshare lots available.
“Metro will be ready to welcome the throngs of Super Bowl spectators, many of whom will be riding Metro for the first time,” said Metro Board Chair and L.A. County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis. “We hope more people will continue to ride Metro to attend all of the major events Los Angeles County has to offer.”
As part of an extensive shuttle system for game day, Metro will be running free bus shuttle service between the C Line (Green) Hawthorne/Lennox Station and the stadium. 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. However, regular transit fares will apply on all other Metro buses and trains.
To reach the shuttle bus, riders should exit C Line trains at Hawthorne/Lennox Station and board the buses on northbound Hawthorne Boulevard. Shuttle buses will drop-off and pick up riders at the purple shuttle zone at SoFi Stadium — near the southeast corner of Prairie Avenue and Arbor Vitae Street.
To plan your trip to the game, Metro suggests that riders download Transit app, Metro’s official app.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be serving as a trusted public transportation partner for Super Bowl LVI and we are looking forward to providing an outstanding experience for the tens of thousands of sports fans joining us from all over the country,” said Stephanie N. Wiggins, CEO, Metro. “We invite attendees of the Super Bowl Experience event as well as the game to grab your TAP card and join us for a safe, enjoyable and car-free ride that will save you both time and money.”
There are also 5,365 parking spots available at C Line Stations — with paid parking at some stations and free parking at others. Parking rates for the Super Bowl are as follows:

Metro’s regular fares are $1.75 for a one-way trip with free transfers for two hours and can be paid with TAP cards. TAP cards can be purchased from TAP vending machines at all Metro Rail stations or Metro Ambassadors that will be located at some stations. Riders can also use their smartphones as a TAP card by downloading the TAP app, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Fans are reminded to load their TAP cards with round-trip fare in advance to save time and avoid long lines at TAP vending machines after the game. Riders can only use one TAP card per person.
