Tips From Metro On How To Take Public Transportation To And From the Walk

Thanks to Fred Camino, who has put together an extensive post on how to take Metro buses to and from this year's event.

My advice: Either plan with a friend and get to Venice Beach around 8 a.m., parking one car, then carpooling to USC (where you'll park the other car).

OR: Park at USC, walk to Venice, then eventually take Metro back to USC.

OR: Park at Venice Beach at 7 a.m., allowing yourself enough time to board a Metro bus to USC. That way, your car is waiting for you when you arrive.

We've tried and failed in the past to drum up enough interest to rent a bus to transport people back to the start line. But if any of you would like to take the lead, I can publicize your plans and hopefully get enough participants for you.

Since the final destination has been confirmed, and if you live west of the 405, I'd suggest parking your car inbetween Venice Blvd and The Baja Cantina (they're about a 1/2 mile apart). Then take bus 333 from Venice Blvd to USC. Here are more specific details copied from the metro site

Starting at 501 S VENICE BLVD

Ride Metro Local Line 200( EXPOSITION PARK) heading south

To: JEFFERSON BLVD/ROYAL ST(SE corner) ***Ar: 08:37AM***
