      METRO ART MOVES: Downtown Stations Tour

      Explore Metro Art, explore Los Angeles! FIRST SUNDAYS: Discover downtown LA's best kept secret as Metro Art takes you underground for a free behind-the-scenes art tour showcasing our Downtown Stations.   Meet promptly at 10:00 am at the information booth inside the Alameda Street entrance to historic Union Station. Metro Art Moves is a free series of regularly scheduled and special tours of artwork in the Metro Rail system. Regular tours are led by trained Metro Art Docent Council volunteers and provide insights into the artworks, artists and art-making processes. Special tours heighten the passenger experience in novel and engaging ways through the perspective, experience and knowledge of artists and cultural experts. Tours are free. Reservations are not required but are appreciated so that the Docent Council can anticipate numbers. Drop-ins are also welcome. GENERAL INFORMATION Metro Art tours take about 2 hours and are approximately 90% walking; there are elevators and escalators in all of the stations. The Docents distribute TAP cards that are pre-loaded with an all-day pass allowing tour participants to ride the Metro Rail & Bus system for free. Attendees may keep the TAP cards and reload them for future use. Docents use voice amplifiers and wear bright orange safety vests for easy identification. Both are provided by Metro. There are no public restrooms available in the stations but there are restrooms available to the public at Union Station as well as various businesses along the routes. Groups of 10+ people can make special reservations with a minimum of three weeks advance notice.  Make a group reservation here
