The starred games will only be played if necessary. Their first two hometown games were on Oct. 24 and 25. The other games — On Oct. 27, 28 and 29 — were held at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

Where is Dodger Stadium?

The stadium is located at 1000 Vin Scully Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

How can I get there?

By car

If you’re planning to drive, general admission parking for the World Series is $30 and preferred parking is $70. You can buy parking online here or pay at the gate (though it may be sold out day-of). See a map of all parking areas here.

You can also park at Union Station for $8 and take the Dodger Stadium Express bus from Union station. More on that below.

By Metro or bus

Fans coming by Metro can take the Gold Line to the Chinatown stop and walk ¾-mile to the stadium, or get off at Union Station and take the Dodger Stadium Express bus.

The Express bus is free for ticket holders and runs every ten minutes, beginning 90 minutes before game time. Dave Sotero, a spokesman for Metro, told KPCC Tuesday that larger buses will be added to the express route during the World Series to accommodate more passengers. Board the bus near the taxi area at Union Station West. Return service begins 45 minutes after the final out.

There is also an Express bus that leaves from South Bay stations Slauson, Manchester, Harbor Freeway, Rosecrans and Harbor Gateway Transit Center. This bus runs every 20 minutes beginning two hours before game time. Return service begins after the end of the 7th inning and ends 45 minutes after the final out.

The closest MTA buses to Dodger Stadium are the No. 2 and the No. 4. You can catch these buses from Santa Monica, the Pacific Coast Highway and downtown LA, or from the Red Line station in Hollywood. Get off near Vin Scully Avenue and Sunset Boulevard for the closest walk to the stadium. Sotero said there will be a dedicated bus lane on Sunset to help speed up fans' trip to the game.

By rideshare

Those taking Uber to the game are allowed to enter through any gate, and other car services are allowed to enter at Sunset Gate A for drop off in Lot 11. There is also a taxi loading and unloading zone at the outer edge of Lot G.

By bike

Seven bike racks are also available. You can locate them using this map.

The stadium offers a wide variety of food options, from classic ballpark fare to poke bowls and everything in between.

Dodgers Executive Chef Ryan Evans told KPCC's Take Two that a special World Series menu will be served up at the stadium beginning on Tuesday. Al pastor fries and a blue-hued doughnut sundae are just a few of the new items on offer.
