The first Dodger home game is three weeks from tonight - Monday, March 28 at 7 p.m. It’s a spring training match-up against the Angels. The Dodger Stadium Express buses will also be back that night.
L.A. Metro launched the game-day bus service between the stadium and Union Station last season. The Express carried more than 120,000 fans out to the ballgame. A $300,000 air quality grant funded the service.
This baseball season, the grant is even bigger – and that will allow Metrolink to take fans out from the ballgame. The commuter rail service will offer late night trains from Union Station at 11 p.m. following weekday home games.
The late night Dodger trains will run on Metrolink’s Antelope Valley, San Bernardino and Ventura County lines.
