Plan Ahead for Sunday\'s Kings Game

While fans are always encouraged to plan extra travel and parking time when attending sold-out playoff games, those attending the Kings game which begins at noon should learn about street closures and detours associated with the bike race.

“It is an exciting time for everybody associated with the Kings, AEG and our fans, and it is an exciting and busy time for STAPLES Center and L.A. LIVE,” said Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille. “At the same time we want all of our fans to get to the arena in a safe manner and we are taking this opportunity to provide as much information as we can leading up to Sunday morning in particular.”

We strongly recommend that you purchase your parking in advance.

PRE-PURCHASE YOUR PARKING OPTIONS:

  • Lot 12
  • Lot 10
  • Lot C
  • Lot W

Parking will be available at the Los Angles Memorial Coliseum Lots 5 & 6 (normal parking rates apply) located off of Hoover Street, where the LA Kings will provide free shuttles that will run from 8:30 AM until one hour after the hockey game’s conclusion.

In addition to the MTA Red Line, which brings fans to 7th and Figueroa and the Blue Line which drops off one block from STAPLES Center at Flower and Pico, the MTA just opened their new Expo Line that also brings riders to the Pico Station across from STAPLES Center. Each of the lines can accommodate passengers with bicycles. For more details on the new Expo Line and other Metro services please visit www.metro.net.
