LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A Dodger Stadium Metro shuttle is back for the 2012 pre-game and regular season, thanks to a grant by the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee.
“Once again, The Dodger Stadium Express comes through for fans,” said Metro Board Chairman and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “Through a generous grant, the MSRC will allow ticketed fans to ride free from Union Station to Dodger Stadium with the purchase of a Dodgers game ticket.”
Metro will offer Dodger Stadium Express bus service from Union Station in downtown LA to Dodger Stadium beginning April 3 with the Dodgers pre-game series.
The bus service will begin two hours prior to game time and end 45 minutes postgame.
The MSRC awarded the $300,000 grant to Metro in support of clean fuel transit service between the two stops.
“Today’s action is a “Triple Play” for Dodger fans,” said Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, a South Coast Air Quality Management District representative on the MSRC and MTA 1st Vice Chair. “Reestablishing our Dodger Stadium Express bus will provide fans across the region an opportunity to avoid traffic, save gas and help improve air quality.”
