This is great news for Angels fans and those who enjoy American League baseball: Metrolink is adding round-trip special service between Union Station in Los Angeles and Angel Stadium in Anaheim. And the price is certainly right: $7 for a round-trip ticket — a good deal unless you really like sitting in traffic on the 5 freeway and burning through $4 per gallon gasoline.
Metrolink already has a stop in the parking lot at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, so it’s always been easy to reach the stadium via transit. But in the past, a lack of evening trains after the game made getting home a problem. Now, a new special train will depart from the stadium for Union Station 30 minutes after the end of Angels games.
All of the details are on the above flyer from Metrolink — the second page with schedules and info about how to get train tickets is after the jump. The new service begins April 8 with the Angels home opener against the defending American League West champion Texas Rangers. Metro, by the way, is one of five county transit agencies in Southern California that funds Metrolink.
