Don't have a way to get to the con? Can't find a ride, but really want to go? Well, don't worry! Use the TransStar system for Southern California to plan out your trip by bus and train. You know what so great about this con that I realized? The Metrolink goes directly to the con! When you get off the train at the station in Lancaster, you only need to walk down the street to the con!

This is so great. Now I don't have to drive 2 hrs to the con. I can catch the Metrolink line. Besides, gas is just as expensive as taking the train. The only difference is that you don't drive to the con, just to the train station or take the bus to the train station!

True, but the Lancaster line doesnt run on Sunday. Aaand, that so called "walk down the street" Well....it's alot longer than it seems, so if you know people who could give you a lift from the station to the con, that would be good. :: is probably taking the train up, and having someone pick him up from Lancaster back to LA area ::

Well, you can always take the 4 AM train back on Monday ;)

Kinda too bad for me... if I were to take the train completely... I get on to the LA station, then I get off, stay at the con for about 2 hours, then I have to go home. Hehe. Oh well... *stares at 1 hr 33 minute drive* *sigh*
