L.A. Dodgers Going Green and Getting Organized!

Just heard that the Los Angeles Dodgers are going green. They've re-introduced the Dodger Trolley which will run from Los Angeles Union Station to Dodger Stadium

Here is the press release:

The City of Los Angeles has restored public transportation to Dodger Stadium. The Los Angeles Dodgers are encouraging fans to "Think Blue, Act Green" by utilizing the new Dodgers Trolley and taking public transit. This service will make getting to the stadium even more convenient!

Free round trip service between Union Station and Dodger Stadium

The service is provided on Game Days, starting 90 minutes before game time and concluding 60 minutes after the game ends.

When: Shuttle service begins Friday, July 25 and will operate for the 32 remaining home games in the 2008 season.

Where: Route begins in front of Union Station on Alameda St. where shuttles connect to the MTA Red, Purple and Gold Lines, Metrolink and Amtrak. A shuttle will leave Union Station approximately every 10 minutes.

* Shuttles will make two stops along Sunset Blvd. on their way to the stadium:
o Figueroa St., with a connection to MTA Lines 2, 4, 55, and 60; Metro Limited Lines 302, 304 and 355; Metro Rapid Line 704; and DASH Lincoln Heights/Chinatown service.
o Marion Ave., with a connection to MTA Lines 2 and 4 arriving from the west.
* The shuttles will drop passengers off inside Dodger Stadium behind behind Center Field, and will run the same route in reverse after the game.

For more information, call 323-224-1507.

Finally, a solution to the disastrous parking situation at Dodger Stadium. When they "re-organized" parking last season, it was a big mistake. This will be a solution I will definitely utilize when I attend Dodger games.

I'm onboard this Friday! Where at Union Station will the trolley pick up passengers? Out front? At the bus transit plaza in the back? Union Station is a big place.

I don't have the exact location at Union Station but I would ask an employee when you arrive. Hopefully, there will be directional signs since I know you won't be the only one looking for the Dodger Trolley. Have fun!
