The Convention Center is located in downtown Los Angeles off the 110 freeway if you are driving.

ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION:
Take the 170 South and park at the North Hollywood Metro Station, parking is free and a Red Line ticket costs $1.50. Exit the Red Line at the 7th St./Metro Station and take the Blue Line Train to the First Station (Pico Station) and the Convention is a 1 block west by foot. (Editor’s Note: The Metro Blue Line is a different train. The Metro Red Line fare does not cover the Metro Blue Line. Therefore, you will need to purchase a ticket for the Blue Line also. You can also purchase a Metro Day Pass at the North Hollywood Station for $6. You can be fined $250 for not having proper fare.)

Recommendations for a fun day:
The subway system is a great way to enjoy the Los Angeles area at a low cost. As mentioned above the parking at the North Hollywood Station is free and is a great alternative to paying the high parking costs in Los Angeles and the areas serviced by the subway. You can also take the Metrolink train to Union Station and enjoy Olvera Street, grab some taquitos at Cielito Lindo, hop on the Redline and enjoy the Auto Show.

Remember the show is very popular on weekend days and Friday the 26th is expected to be heavier traffic than usual. The show is open until 10 p.m. most days and is best enjoyed when you can take the show in at your own pace. No Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving Day? Think about enjoying the Auto Show before that nap inducing turkey dinner.
