Rolling Stones in LA

Looking for suggestions about public transportation to Rose Bowl concert next Thursday - I have taken a public bus before from a remote parking lot, but it's been many years - does anyone have specifics to offer? uber/lyft is last resort as is on-site parking

Where would you be coming from?

For Rose Bowl games, we have parked at Union Station in DTLA and taken the Gold Line light rail to the Memorial Park Station. From there you can walk to the Rose Bowl (2 miles) or you can catch a free shuttle from the surface parking lot adjacent to the Parsons Complex on South Pasadena Avenue.

Ugh. Traffic eastbound from Calabasas is pretty terrible from 3pm to 7:30pm every day.

From Pasadena there is a bowl shuttle ($5 round trip if purchased in advance) that takes you from Raymond/Walnut intersection to the bowl and back. It runs constantly there are several buses. So I would probably head to Pasadena around 2pm and plan on having a late lunch/ early dinner around 3:30 and then hop the shuttle around 5pm to the Bowl. Note that the weather is expected to be quite hot that afternoon, and the Bowl suggests allowing an hour to get through security etc. And you might then be sitting in the sun from 6pm to 7:30 pm depending on where your seats are.

If you parked in Glendale, there is express bus service to Pasadena so that you don't have to drive the last 30 mins of bad traffic...but there is no express bus back to Glendale after the concert so you would be looking at Uber/Lyft with surge pricing, or a "regular" bus which is about a 35 minute ride.
