Dodgers fans looking to dodge traffic can once again hop on L.A. Metro’s free Dodger Express bus.

Service will begin on Thursday for the Dodgers’ 7:10 p.m. home opener against the Cincinnati Reds. Buses headed to Dodger Stadium will be available to board from downtown's Union Station and at several Metro bus stops along the Silver Line in the South Bay: Slauson, Manchester, Harbor Freeway, Rosecrans and Harbor Gateway Transit Center (Bay 9).

All South Bay stops are located along or near the 110 Freeway.

If space is available, riders will also be allowed to board at Cesar E. Chavez/Broadway.

Dodger Express buses running from Union Station will start picking up riders 90 minutes before game time, and will stop at the end of the second inning. Return service will begin at the end of the game, and run, according to Metro’s website, for “45 minutes after the final out or 20 minutes after post-game events.”

Buses running from stops in the South Bay will take fans to Dodger Stadium every 20 minutes, beginning two hours before game time. Return service will begin “at the end of the seventh inning, with the last bus departing 45 minutes after the final out or 20 minutes after a post-game event.”

According to a Metro spokesperson, more than 2.5 million people have used the express bus since the service was introduced in 2010.
