* We recommend that everyone take METRO (see below).
Take METRO! No traffic, no parking, no hassle!
Don’t get stuck in traffic! Who wants to look for a parking spot, anyway? Take the Metro Gold Line to the Chinatown Station, we’re right across the street, you can’t miss the Homeboy Industries building.
Metro provides Bus and Rail transportation. Visit the Metro Trip Planner.
Hitch a ride with UBER to the event! Yep, your personal driver will come get you and drop you off right at the 5K! Just download the iPhone or Android APP and request your ride.
So even after the Metro & Uber offerings, you still want to drive. We can help you find parking as close to the 5K as possible. Just go to ParkMe.com OR download the APP for iPhone or Android and ParkMe will tell you ALL the parking lots (with prices) closest to the Homeboy 5K!
