Speed Dating on the Red Line will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Valentine's Day. Metro staff will be at seven Red Line stations to register speed daters: Union Station, Civic Center/Grand Park, 7th Street/Metro, Wilshire/Vermont, Vermont/Santa Monica, Hollywood/Highland and North Hollywood. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. Upon signing in, speed daters will receive a wristband to indicate participation.
Every Red Line train between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. will have one decorated Speed Dating Train Car for registered participants. The designated Speed Dating Train Car will be the last car on trains heading to North Hollywood and the first car on trains heading towards Union Station. Once on board, Metro staff will explain the event guidelines for participants. Participants will be able to board any Speed Dating Train Car during the event.
Two Metro Cupids also will be riding the Red Line during the event. All who take photos with the Metro Cupids are encouraged to share their encounters via social media - and they can enter their photos in the LoveMetroLA Instagram photo contest if they meet the contest requirements! Follow Metro on Instagram @metrolosangeles and tagging Metro and #LoveMetroLA.
All participants must be 18 years or older and are responsible for their own valid transit fare media. Participants must adhere to Metro's Customer Code of Conduct.
