Some Los Angeles Dodgers fans may have the option of leaving their cars at home and taking Metrolink trains to home games.

Directors of the regional service on Friday approved a motion to study special train service for Dodger games on the railroad's San Bernardino and Antelope Valley lines.

That would allow fans from eastern and northern parts of the Los Angeles region to avoid traffic on the State Route 60 freeway and Interstates 10 and 210, as well as parking hassles.

The trains would deliver fans to Union Station downtown and from there those with game tickets would ride free on express buses to and from the stadium.

The study will look into scheduling and fare options. The motion directs staff to report back within 60 days.
