Dodger Stadium Express Bus Service is Back for 2010 Season

The no-cost shuttle that connects Union Station to Dodger Stadium for fans is back for the 2010 season thanks in part to a $300,000 grant from the Mobile Sources Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee. Councilmember Reyes, alongside Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Council President Eric Garcetti and representatives from Metro, were on-hand yesterday at Dodger Stadium to unveil the buses.

The Dodger Stadium Express buses, running on natural gas, will shuttle between the locations every 10 minutes before game time, beginning 90 minutes prior to the first pitch until the third inning; and approximately every 30 minutes until the final out. Admission tickets to Dodgers games will be honored as fare payment to ride the bus. The service begins April 1 with the Dodgers pre-game series.
