Metro’s Dodger Stadium Express to Provide Service to Dodgers World Series Games

Tuesday October 24, 2017

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will provide Dodger Stadium Express bus service for the World Series against the Houston Astros beginning this evening. Attendees of Los Angeles home games are encouraged to take Metro to the game to beat traffic during rush-hour games.

To accommodate additional riders, Metro will be adding articulated 60-foot buses to augment express service.  A new boarding location has been designated for the Dodger Stadium Express at Union Station West near the taxi zone. If arriving from inside the station, go through the front door and turn left.  Metro will post signs and assign personnel to help direct attendees to the new boarding location.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early, as large crowds are expected, especially near game time. The Dodger Stadium Express is free for those with game tickets.  However, regular Metro fares apply on all other connecting bus and rail services.

Service from Union Station will be provided starting three hours prior to the start of the games and ending 45 minutes after the close of the games. Service from the Harbor Gateway Transit Center will be provided beginning two hours prior to the start of the games and ending 45 minutes after the game is over.

The Dodger Stadium Express from Union Station will pick up Dodger fans every 10 minutes in front of Union Station. Service will continue to Dodger Stadium via Sunset Boulevard and Cesar Chavez Avenue. Passengers will be dropped off and picked up at one of two stops, either behind center field or at the top deck.

From Harbor Gateway Transit Center, baseball fans can board buses located at Bay 9, with buses running every 20 minutes. Fans will be dropped off behind right field at Dodger Stadium. Buses back to Harbor Gateway Transit Center will pick up patrons at the same stop after the game.

Dodger Stadium Express service includes a dedicated bus lane on Sunset Boulevard, where game day traffic congestion is the heaviest.

The service to all home games is paid for by a grant from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC).  The MSRC awards funding within the South Coast Air Basin from a portion of the state vehicle registration fee set aside for mobile source projects that result in emission reductions from cars and trucks. Funding for the Harbor Gateway Transit Center service is being provided by Metro’s ExpressLanes Net Toll Reinvestment Grant Program.
