The LAFC community has aggregated tips and suggestions for transportation and parking to help fans get the most out of their matchdays.
Directions By Metro
The Banc of California Stadium is easily accessible using the Metro Expo Line at the Expo Park/USC Station.
From the Expo Park/USC station, walk along Kinsey Drive or Victory Walk to South Coliseum Drive towards Banc of California Stadium.
The Metro Expo Line can be easily accessed with connections at the 7th Street/Metro Center in downtown Los Angeles to the Metro Red/Purple lines, and at the Pico Station to the Metro Blue line. Fans using the Metro Gold Line can make an easy transfer at Union station to the Metro Red/Purple lines for a connection to the Expo Line.
It is recommended to purchase a round-trip fare at the beginning of trips to avoid lines when the games are over. Each person, including children over the age of 5, must have a valid TAP card and remember to tap before each boarding.
FACE MASK IS REQUIRED ON ALL PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION PER FEDERAL LAW
Please keep in mind that Metro is constructing the Regional Connector which will link the Azusa branch of the Gold Line with the Blue Line and the Expo Line with the East LA branch of the Gold Line. There will be updates available via The Source. Fans can also check Twitter @metrolaalerts, metro.net/service/advisories/, or call 323-GOMETRO for updates and trip-planning assistance. A 24/7 in-language assistance project hotline can be reached at 213-922-7277 to address concerns.
/r/LAFC's Matchday Metro Tip
One of the best options is to park nearby a Metro train station near Downtown or surrounding communities of the stadium and then ride the Metro to the Expo Park/USC station. Here is information regarding the parking lots next to train stations of the Metro. Make sure to check the parking lot of the station to see if it is free or if it costs money and plan ahead to find out how long it will take to get to the stadium from the station. Be mindful of the fares and passes prices.
Directions By Car
From the North, take Exposition Boulevard or Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard southbound off-ramps from I-110 freeway.
From the South: Take Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard or 37th Street northbound off-ramps from I-110 freeway. Green Lot (formerly Lot 6) parking entrance is located on Hoover Avenue off Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
/r/LAFC's Matchday Driving Tip
It is strongly recommended to arrive at the stadium two hours before kickoff. Two hours might seem like a lot of time but arriving 30 minutes before kickoff fans will encounter heavy Figueroa traffic combined with other fans searching for parking.
/r/LAFC's Matchday Parking Tip
LAFC and Ticketmaster have a ‘Ticket Add-On' for the north and southwest parking lots. To get this parking pass, go Ticketmaster and click on ‘Add-On Available' for the specific match, click ‘Parking' and then click 'Banc of California Stadium Parking'. This pass can also be found on the LAFC App and is cheaper when purchased before matchday. This pass sells quickly and will most likely be sold out on the day of the game.
LAFC has partnered with Uber as our official ride share partner. An enhanced Uber pick-up and drop-off designated location will be available for fans on matchdays, located right outside the Southeast Entrance in the Green Lot (formerly Lot 6).
/r/LAFC's Matchday Ride Share Tip
Riders can reserve Uber up to a month in advance to find a cheaper fare. Before reserving, understand how long the ride from your destination to the stadium is. For this, fans can use Google Maps and input the departure time to see how long it estimates how long the commute will be. For example, if it takes an hour to arrive to the stadium by car, then plan to reserve to be picked up 3 hours ahead of kickoff. Again, it is recommended to arrive at the stadium 2 hours before kickoff.
Banc of California Stadium has 100 permanent bicycle parking spaces around Expo Park.
