NOTES for 2019
Construction at the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Exposition Park continues through spring of 2019. This may impact traffic and travel times, as well as availability of spaces for parking and tailgates. Please plan for delays in travel time, parking, and entering the Coliseum. Public transportation is highly recommended.
All vehicle traffic will be diverted toward the 10 and 110 freeways after USC football games.
Access to local streets will be limited due to temporary road closures on Exposition, Figueroa, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.
Street closures (outlined in red on the map below) will begin from the end of the third period until 60 minutes after the game.
Pedestrian crossings will be clearly marked on all closed streets, please obey all directions from LAPD and LADOT
See the traffic map below for additional details.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Beat the traffic and Go Metro: Visitors are strongly encouraged to ride Expo Line trains or Silver Line express buses, as Metro runs enhanced service on game days. Trains take just 15 minutes to get here from Culver City or Downtown LA, where you can transfer to other Metro Rail lines. Skip post-game lines at the fare machines by loading round trip fare or a Day Pass in advance and remember to TAP your card on validators before each boarding, even when transferring to other lines. Each person must have a TAP card as they cannot be shared. Free parking is available at many stations but parking at Culver City and La Cienega/Jefferson fills up early. Plan ahead at metro.net or use Google Transit.
Visitors planning to use public transportation this season may purchase a limited edition, pre-loaded Metro TAP card from USC Transportation; contact Rideshare Coordinator Maira Meza-Olvera (email@example.com) for information.
New Metro Fares in Effect (and some fans may now get a better deal)!: 1-Way Trips are $1.75 & now include 2 hours of free transfers with your TAP card. This means a trip from Pasadena to Expo Park/USC (via Gold, Red/Purple and Expo Lines) now costs $3.50 round trip vs. $5 Day Pass previously. 1-Day Pass is now $7 (valid until 3am). Each fan must continue tapping their own card before entering the platform, even when transferring lines. Metro will be sure to get you home safely, even after midnight, as Metro Rail closes at 2am on Saturday nights. For more information on Metro’s new fares, visit metro.net/fares or visit metro.net/gameday for Game Day Tips, Instructions & Discounts.
Bus Detours: During street closures, area buses will detour onto nearby streets with delays in service. Customers should use Expo Line or Silver Line service instead to avoid disruption.
Reserved parking on Game Day: USC Transportation is once again partnering with Click & Park to offer limited prepaid reserved parking in the Grand Avenue Structure (formerly UPX), Downey Way Structure, Royal Structure, and Shrine Structure; for more information or to make a reservation for any upcoming game, please visit their website.
Access to High Occupancy Traffic (HOT) Lanes: Access to the HOT Express Lanes onto 110 South will be available to drivers with transponders ONLY. We encourage all fans using this route to obtain a transponder to provide quicker commute times home.
Access to all museums in Exposition Park via the Figueroa Street entrance remains unrestricted during USC Football Game Day egress. Patrons should park in the parking garage off of 39th St./Figueroa Street. Patrons visiting the Natural History Museum should use the Vermont Ave./39th Street entrance which remains unrestricted as well. For more information, please visit the Expo Park website.
