The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) today announced it will again offer its popular SoFi Stadium Express shuttle bus service from Hawthorne/Lennox C Line (Green) Station to SoFi Stadium for all L.A. Rams and L.A. Chargers home games during the 2023-2024 NFL season.
Going Metro makes game day even more fun. The comradery with other fans, saving time and money, plus Metro’s express shuttle bus service takes passenger straight to SoFi Stadium. The express shuttle will operate from the C Line (Green) Hawthorne/Lennox Station and will run every 7-8 minutes beginning three hours before kick-off and will operate every five minutes for ninety minutes after the game ends. The shuttle bus is free; however, riders will need a TAP card or the TAP app for rail fare, if connecting from the C Line. Metro will operate its regular schedule for all NFL games.
The pick-up/drop-off location for the shuttle bus off the C Line is on the northbound side of Hawthorne Boulevard just south of the station exit. At SoFi Stadium the drop-off/pick-up location is in the transit lot adjacent to the southeast corner of the intersection of Prairie and Arbor Vitae. During games the shuttle will run as needed.
For fans driving to the shuttle, parking is available at Metro’s Hawthorne/Lennox Station for $25 pre-sale online or $30 on-site on game day if not already sold out. Thousands of free or discounted parking is available at other stations along the C Line. The Norwalk Station, located just off I-605 Freeway at Imperial Highway, is a good option and is free on weekends and just $3 on weekdays. Trains from the Norwalk Station run up to 65 MPH between stations for a 23-minute trip from the Norwalk Station to the shuttle pickup point at the Hawthorne/Lennox Station. The Crenshaw/I-105 Station also has parking available priced at $3 on game days and is only 1 train stop away from the shuttle pickup point.
