If you like to drink at Dodger home games, unless you have a diligent designated driver, getting to the stadium can be tricky. Well, it can be tricky, too, if you don't want to take a car to get there. While there is not currently a regular bus stop at the Stadium, Metro will be running their seasonal Dodger Stadium Express bus service for the third consecutive year.

The bus, which operates between Union Station and Dodger Stadium, runs 90 minutes before the game and 45 minutes after, and is free to ride for Dodgers ticket holders. Those without a game ticket will need to pay the $1.50 one-way fare.

Service will be provided every 10 minutes prior to the start of the game and run approximately every 30 minutes throughout the game

The pickup/dropoff spot at Union Station is on the Patsaouras Bus Plaza, and the stop at the Stadium is in the parking lot behind Left/Center field.

Metro says they are able to run the bus this year thanks to a $300,000 grant from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC). The buses used are 40-foot clean burning compressed natural gas (CNG) buses, says Metro.
