Friday & Saturday, Oct. 9 & 10: Playoffs start for our boys in blue! The Dodgers take on the New York Mets at Dodger Stadium. Games start 6:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. and the Dodger Stadium Express will be running from both Union Station and Harbor Gateway. UPDATE: The Dodgers and Metro are urging everyone to arrive early whether taking the bus to the game or driving. Traffic on L.A. freeways is expected to be tough for both Friday’s and Saturday’s games. 


Saturday, Oct. 10: It’s Mexico vs. USA for the CONCACAF Cup at the Rose Bowl. Take the Gold Line to Memorial Park Station, then transfer to the free shuttle for the Rose Bowl.
