L.A. Metro Offers Extra Rail Service for Rams vs. Cowboys NFL Playoff Game at L.A. Coliseum this Saturday, January 12

Wednesday January 09, 2019

With more than 70,000 football fans expected to attend the NFL playoff game between the L.A. Rams and Dallas Cowboys at the L.A. Coliseum on Saturday, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is enhancing rail service and encouraging fans to “Go Metro” to beat traffic congestion and parking hassles in the Exposition Park area. 

The game kicks off at 5:15 p.m. and is expected to end around 8:15 p.m. Metro’s Expo Line makes it easy to attend the game, with two stations — the Expo Park/USC Station or Expo/Vermont Station — closest to the Coliseum. Expo Line trains will operate every six minutes before and after the game. Metro will operate three-car trains on both the Expo Line and Blue Line. On the Red and Purple Lines, Metro will operate six-car trains with trains running every six minutes in downtown Los Angeles.

Metro’s Silver Line is also available to provide express bus service between San Pedro, Downtown L.A. and El Monte. Those coming to the game on the Silver Line should exit at the 37th Street/USC Station for the short walk to the Coliseum. 

Fans are reminded to load their TAP cards with $3.50 round-trip fare in advance to avoid waiting in line. A one-way trip is $1.75 and includes transfers to other Metro lines for up to two hours. A Silver Line one-way trip is $2.50. Metro Day Passes are $7. Fares are sold on TAP cards. Fans can purchase TAP cards at TAP vending machines at all Metro Rail stations or from a Metro representative at the station. Riders can only use one TAP card per person. 

Metrolink commuter rail is offering $10 roundtrip tickets for football fans with special late-night service post-game on the Antelope Valley, Orange County and San Bernardino County Lines. Metrolink paper tickets or mobile tickets are valid for free transfers to Metro Rail lines. For a schedule of Metrolink late night services for Saturday, please visit
