Additional Transportation Related Information for X Games 16
In order to make your X Games experience more enjoyable, we suggest the following:
Arriving at the Coliseum
1) Park at USC
With more than so many people arriving at roughly the same time on the day of event, traffic is an unavoidable consequence. For this reason, we recommend arriving early, exiting the freeway early and parking at USC, where there is a substantial amount of parking available on the day of the game. This will cut down on your wait time, and from these lots, the Coliseum is just a short walk away.
Following is a list of available USC Parking Facilities:
Gate #1 - enter at Exposition Blvd. and Watt Way (just east of Menlo Blvd. on the north side of Exposition Blvd.)
Gate #3 - enter at Figueroa Street and McCarthy Blvd. (across from the Radisson Hotel, on the west side of Figueroa)
Gate #4 - enter at Jefferson Blvd. and Royal (immediately east of Hoover on the south side of Jefferson)
Gate #5 - enter at Jefferson Blvd. and McClintock (just east of Vermont, on the south side of Jefferson Blvd.)
Gate #6 - enter at Vermont Avenue and 36th Street (across the street from Togos, on the east side of Vermont)
There are additional USC Parking Facilities at Grand Avenue and Jefferson Blvd., as well as on Exposition Blvd. and Flower Street.
