Since 2010, more than 2 million fans have taken the Dodger bus, according to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which is sponsoring the service. Half of the cost comes from a Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee grant.In 2018, the bus had a banner year, providing rides to more than 371,000 fans.Here’s how these car-less game day rides work:Angel ExpressRuns Monday through Fridays, night games only. But the five nights a week are only for Orange County passengers and only from these stations: Oceanside, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo, Irvine, Tustin, Santa Ana and Orange.One train only on Friday nights goes from L.A. Union Station to Anaheim-ARTIC station and back (with stops in Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs, Buena Park and Fullerton). The train waits 30 minutes after the game to return north to Union Station.The same is true for Angel fans in Riverside County. The Friday night only Angel Express leaves Perris (South and Downtown); Moreno Valley; Hunter Park-UCR; Riverside (Downtown and La Sierra); Corona (North Main and West) and Anaheim Canyon. At Orange, passengers transfer to the Angel Stadium train and vice versa on the return trip.Round-trip tickets cost $7 (adults); $6 (seniors); $4 (children ages 6-18 and ages 5 and under ride free). Tickets are available at all Metrolink ticket machines on day of the game or through the Metrolink app.Dodgers fans can disembark at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and catch a Dodgers Stadium Express Bus. The round-trip connection is complimentary with a Dodgers ticket.
