Welcoming Fans Back to Dodger Stadium

Last week Dodger fans filled Dodger Stadium for the first home game of the season. This is the 60th anniversary of the iconic LA stadium. LADOT operations helped the opening day crowd have access to and from the stadium. For home games, LADOT encourages fans to use public transportation to get to and from the stadium on time and avoid traffic congestion. Dodger Stadium Express is free for all ticketholders and can be accessed using the Union Station service or the South Bay Service. Also, LADOT’s DASH D route will take fans to Union Station to access the Dodger Stadium Express service.

Visit the Dodgers website for more details.
