The Dodgers open at home April 1 with a three-game home stand against the Giants, and Metro’s Dodger Stadium Express will be providing convenient, free service to the ballpark from Union Station Patsaouras Plaza to those with game tickets. Ride in and catch the Express on Metro Bus or Rail and skip the hassle of traffic and parking.
And when the Dodgers hit the road and travel to San Francisco in May – and July, and September? Or, if some die-hard Giants fan wants to follow their team to L.A.? Megabus.com can take you from Union Station Patsaouras Plaza and drop you off just a block from AT&T Park. Megabus.com fares start at just $1 but increase as the departure date nears or as seats fill up, so buy your tickets in advance to get them cheap. Megabus.com offers six trips to San Francisco every day.
Angels fans, don’t feel left out, there’s something for you too: Take advantage of the Metrolink Angels Express Train, which will provide special service from Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo or Union Station to Angel Stadium of Anaheim for weeknight Angels games.
Finally, I’d be a bad hockey fan if I didn’t mention the L.A. Megabus.com connection to San Jose. The Western Conference is still anybody’s guess for the last few playoff spots, but if the Sharks squeeze in and somehow end up facing the Kings – all right, or the Ducks – would you be willing to make a trip to the Shark Tank? Megabus.com stops right outside HP Pavilion…

I would expect a government agency NOT to enter into exclusive cross promotions with private transportation companies.
And I expect such promotional deals to be prominently disclosed. You do a disservice to the public by steering business to one private vendor over the other.
Your job is to publicize transit, not just cronies.
Are they having Dodger Stadium Express service for the Exhibition game against the Angels on Friday March 29th?
Yes, the Dodger Stadium Express will be running on March 29. Service begins 90 minutes before game time and will run every 10 minutes.

Did Megabus.com sponsor something? It seems strange that Metro is promoting it so strongly in this post. I am also aware that Greyhound and CAshuttlebus.com also offer decently priced tickets to the same destinations but they were not mentioned. Thanks.
It’s part of a cross promotion with Megabus.com. Ads promoting the connection to the Dodger Express will be on their site next week. While Greyhound and CAshuttlebus also offer similar routes, neither connects directly with Patsaouras Plaza.
