Dodger Stadium Express Is A Hit
Dodger fans know that the experience of driving to and parking at Dodger Stadium can be frustrating.
To help fans, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority recently started a new service to shuttle fans from LA's Union Station to Dodger Stadium. More than 1,400 people lined up the first day for the new service.
"Having over 1,400 Dodger fans across the County utilize the Dodger Stadium Express helped relieve congestion and improve air quality," said LA County Supervisor Michael Antonovich. "By thinking blue and acting green the new Dodger Stadium Express is a home run for everyone."
Dodger game admission tickets will be honored as fare payment on the state-of-the-art 40-foot clean-burning compressed natural gas buses.
The buses will run between Union Station and Dodger Stadium every 10 minutes prior to the start of the game and run approximately every 30 minutes throughout the game.
Supervisor Antonovich is a member of the Governing Board of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD), and secured a $300,000 grant from the Mobile Sources Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee to operate a no-cost Express Bus connecting Dodger Stadium to Union Station for the 2010 season.
