All aboard the Dodger Staduim Express!

Metro has announced it will again offer Dodger Stadium Express bus service from Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to Dodger Stadium beginning March 28 through the regular 2011 baseball season.

Last year, the Dodger Stadium Express bus service transported more than 122,000 fans with more than 60 percent of those riders using public transportation from their place of origin to get to Union Station.

Metrolink will also offer additional late night service on three of its popular lines following weekday home games. Round trip tickets on Metrolink trains associated with the Dodger home games will cost between $8 and $10.

Service will be provided every 10 minutes prior to the start of the game and run approximately every 30 minutes throughout the game. Dodgers admission tickets will be honored as fare payment to ride the bus service. Those without a ticket will pay regular one way fare of $1.50.
