LOS ANGELES -

Valentine's Day in Southern California will be marked Friday by a speed dating event on the Metro Red Line, a gathering in West Hollywood to seek justice for women who are victims of violence and rape, a blood drive and a Skid Row wedding.
 
Metro will conduct "Speed Dating on the Red Line'' in an effort to assist riders seeking to find love while in transit. Registration will be conducted from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and the speed dating will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Metro staff will be at the Union Station, Civic Center/Grand Park, 7th Street/Metro, Wilshire/Vermont, Vermont/Santa Monica; Hollywood/Highland and
North Hollywood stations to register speed daters. Upon signing in, speed daters will receive a wristband to indicate participation.

Every Red Line train between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. will have one decorated Speed Dating Train Car for registered participants.

The designated Speed Dating Train Car will be the last car on trains heading to North Hollywood and the first car on trains heading toward Union
Station. Once on board, Metro staff will explain the event guidelines for participants.

All participants must be at least 18 years old and are responsible for their own valid transit fare media. Participants must adhere to Metro's
Customer Code of Conduct.
