Union Station Dodger Stadium Express will run for The Classic West

If you’re heading to The Classic West concerts on July 15 and 16, consider taking the Dodger Stadium Express. Buses will be running from Union Station both days starting at 3 p.m. and the ride is free with your concert ticket.

From Union Station:

  • Board near the Mozaic Apartment complex on the Alameda Street side of Union Station.
  • Service leaves Union Station approximately every 10 minutes.
  • You can exit inside Dodger Stadium at one of two stops – behind Center Field and at the Top Deck. Service will pick up at the same stops after the show.
  • Return service runs until 45 minutes after the concert ends.

Union Station is the primary transit hub for the region and is served by the Metro Red/Purple Line subway, the Metro Gold Line, the Silver Line, numerous Metro Bus lines, Amtrak and Metrolink. Please click here for Metro maps and timetables of every rail and bus line. You can also use Trip Planner or Google Transit to find routes and connections. Parking is available at Union Station for $8.

Dodger Stadium Express service is provided to all home games under a grant from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC). The MSRC awards funding within the South Coast Air Basin from a portion of the state vehicle registration fee set aside for mobile source projects that result in emission reductions from cars and trucks. Funding for the Harbor Gateway Transit Center service is being provided by Metro’s ExpressLanes Net Toll Reinvestment Grant Program.

  1. The O’maley family was lucky to get Chavez Ravine as a gift from the city of Los Angeles, now L.A Metro continuous the tradition giving free ride to Dodgers costumers instead of free ride for high school students, strange priorities. We need a Metro system design for Los Angeles so we can get our city from the list of the most polluted cities in USA.

    • Hi Jeff,

      Shuttles will only be in service from Union Station per request from event promoter.

      Thank you,

  2. We really need bus service from Harbor Gateway Transit Center just like they have with the Dodger games. This would help tremendously to ease traffic. I know a bunch of people from the South Bay and OC who are going. It would also stop at the Harbor Freeway station(@105 fwy). Makes sense to me. I hope they add this.

    • Hi Phil,

      No argument from me here! However, at this time funding for the DSE service from Harbor Gateway is allocated for Dodgers games only. In order for DSE to run during non-Dodgers events, it would have to be negotiated with each event promoter, and in this case they had only requested service from Union Station.

      Thank you,

    • Hi Rachel,

      That should not be a problem, but just in case perhaps you could keep a screenshot on your phone (or print out) of the ticket receipt or confirmation email.

      Thanks!

  3. Great job morons! A thousand + of us waiting for an hour + after the concert and NO BUSSES

  4. Express service was not good for Saturday night. No express lanes were open, so the buses were taking about an hour for the round trip. The line to get on the bus got long because of this, so it was about a 40 minute wait to get on a bus and the ride took more than 30 minutes (standing) to get to the first drop off point. In theory it was a good plan, but with the express lanes being closed it was very very slow.

  5. After the July 16th classic west, we waited an hour after the show ended for only one dodger stadium bus to show up. It was full. A second showed up a few minutes later and lucky for us we were near the front of the line. Poor souls behind us. Completely stumped on how buses can be lined up on the night before but the next night there was complete disorganization. The concert was amazing but unbelievably disappointed in how dodger stadium manages its inflow and outflow of traffic.
