Thanks! This worked out perfectly for us. We got on at the Lake Station and transferred to the Red Line. The walk only took us about 10 minutes and we chatted the whole way with a group we met on the Gold Line. Totally worth it!

Getting to the Game: Tips and Tricks for Taking Transit
I guess the first tip should be "Wait for season to start."@

I'm coming up from San Diego to the game Saturday. I'm thinking of jumping on the early Amtrak to Union Station. Is there a Metro connection at Union Station, to head down to Staples Center?

Take the Redline to 7th Street Metro Station ( about 3 stops down ?)

Numbered streets should be getting higher (7th , 8th etc)
It's sort of down hill if that helps
Staples center is at Figueroa and 11th .
About a 10 minute walk
You can't miss it really.
Another thing that works is just follow all the people with Kings jerseys
when you exit the station or the blue line train .

Sounds perfect! For a weekend game it's simply a no-brainer to use the Rail system to avoid that long drive and the horrible L.A. Traffic!
