Metro Offering Late-Night Train Service... This Sunday Only

Thanks to a U2 concert at the Rose Bowl this Sunday evening, train service will be extended into the wee hours of Monday morning. 100,000 people are expected to descend upon the stadium and officials with the Rose Bowl and Live Nation--both which paid for the extended service--are encouraging fans to take public transit. Whether you just want to have a wild Sunday night in Pasadena or are going to the concert, here's how it works: At 100 W. Walnut, two blocks from the Gold Line's Memorial Park Station, there will be shuttle service to and from the Rose Bowl for $5 roundtrip. Service begins at noon on Sunday and will stop after all fans have left the stadium.
Trains will run every 20 minutes (maybe faster) once the regular schedule concludes. The last north and south Gold Line trains will leave at 1:15 and 1:27 a.m., respectively. From Union Station, the last Red Line train to North Hollywood will leave at 1:57 a.m. The last Blue Line train to Long Beach will leave Metro/7th at 2:02 a.m. and the Green Line trains to Norwalk and Redondo Beach will leave at 2:37 and 2:41 a.m., respectively.
What about late-night subway service during the holiday season like they did last year? In February, the city's Transportation Committee recommended the program continue this year, but no follow-up action has since happened.
