The proposed route from Union Station to Dodger Stadium | View Larger Map

Come end of July, expect to see public transit hit Dodger stadium again after a 14-year hiatus (save for a small Friday night 2004 experiment that failed). A proposal is making it's way through city council this week and is expected to pass out of committee and the full council.

The plan, for the last 32 home games starting July 25, is to operate a DASH shuttle from Union Station to Dodger Stadium via Cesar Chavev/Sunset Blvd. with two stops along the way. Five buses would be put into service making passengers only wait an estimate 8-minutes before and after games for a less than 20-minute ride from Union Station.

It's estimate to cost $70,000, but councilman Eric Garcetti told the LA Times that patrons should expect to pay something for the service. By LAist's estimates, with 32 games and at least 1000 people using the service each time, paying $2.19 for a roundtrip ticket would cover the project's cost. Make it a flat 3-bucks and you've got $96,000, with an extra $26,000 for contingency or going towards some sort of transit fund. A full 81 home game season would cost $180,000. Here's to winning some more games and a better and more green Dodger experience!
