Rose Bowl Transportation

Rose Bowl Transportation

Christmas and Hanukkah may be right around the corner but to the football lover, these pale in comparison to the greatest holiday of all, and that’s the 103rd Rose Bowl game.

The 2017 Rose Bowl is held at the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, California on January 2nd, 2015. What better way to ring in the new year than cheer for your favorite team (or root against your least favorite). Tickets this year are ranging from $150-$210+. Tickets are limited, so if you’re unlucky on Ticketmaster you might have to try through Craigslist but buyer beware! The Rose Bowl can hold up to 92,500 people so you are guaranteed to have a good time with fellow football fans.

The Rose Bowl has a long tradition of pre-game events. After the teams arrive in sunny Southern California, they participate in Lawry’s Beef Bowl in Beverly Hills and the Disney media day at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Of course there is also tailgating when you are at the stadium. We suggest grabbing a portable grill, a cooler, and a LOT of beer to ensure a solid tailgate. One of the most iconic pre-game activities will always be the Rose Parade. Don’t forget your tickets because if you want to experience this in its fullest effect, you want grandstand seating, which requires a ticket. However, there is also the possibility of just curbside viewing areas on a first come first serve basis. The parades theme this year is “Echoes Of Success” and will feature floral floats, spirited marching bands, and high-stepping equestrian units all along a 5 1/2 mile span down Colorado Blvd.

So, how do you safely get around for all of these events? Metro operates a light rail service to Pasadena via the Metro Gold Line. If you would like to take the Metro Gold Line to the game, exit the train at Memorial Park Station in Pasadena. Follow the signs for two blocks to the Rose Bowl Shuttle pick-up location at Parsons. However, the metro is going to be packed on the day of the Rose Bowl game, so expect delays and sardine-packed trains. Uber? Yes… but no. Uber is a testy alternative as they are often surged so you can struggle to find a driver if they don’t like your route. Thankfully Strack Trans has you covered. With our wide selection of cars we can help you plan your trip no matter how small OR large the group. Whether you have a large group like a sorority and need mass transportation, or just need a ride for you and a buddy, we have it all. Not in the SoCal area? No worries. We can provide transportation to any college football playoff game in the country. Even if you’re one of the lucky few who’s team gets into the CFP (which is being held at the Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas), we have your CFP game limo covered as well.
