Beginning with the Dodgers pre-game series April 1 and through the regular 2010 baseball season, Metro will offer Dodger Stadium Express bus service from Union Station.The Dodger Stadium Express bus service will be offered starting 90 minutes before the beginning of games and for 45 minutes after the end of a game. Service will be provided every 10 minutes prior to the start of the game and run approximately every 30 minutes throughout the game.

The Dodger Express bus will pick up fans at the Patsaouras Bus Plaza adjacent to the east portal of Union Station, and continue to the stadium via Sunset Boulevard and Cesar Chavez Avenue. Passengers will be dropped off and picked up in the Dodgers parking lot behind left/center field.

Dodgers admission ticket will serve as payment to ride the clean-burning compressed natural gas buses. Those without a ticket will pay regular one-way fare of $1.25.

Metro is using a $300,000 grant from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee to provide clean fuel transit service to link Union Station to Dodger Stadium. The committee awards funding within the South Coast Air Basin from a portion of the vehicle registration fee set aside for projects that reduce emissions.
