LACMTA to provide rail service to Tournament of Roses Parade


The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) on New Year's Day will mark its 10th official year of Metro Rail service to the 2014 Tournament of Roses celebrations.

Metro will provide frequent train service to and from Pasadena, Calif., all day, with four station stops near the parade route, LACMTA officials said in a press release.

The Metro Gold Line opened in 2003, providing rail service to the 2004 tournament festivities. Prior to that, no transit-rail service traveled to Pasadena in more than 50 years. The last Pacific Electric Red Cars were discontinued in 1951.

Metrolink also will provide train service to access the parade from Union Station on its San Bernardino and Antelope lines.
