With NASA this week announcing the discovery of seven new planets that could potentially harbor life, Long Beach Transit has launched the Galaxy Express to take you to — oh wait, different Galaxy.


The Los Angeles Galaxy’s 2017 MLS Season kicks off next Saturday, March 4 at the StubHub Center in Carson and there’s a lot to look forward to this year. For one, it’ll be much easier to get to Galaxy home games thanks to Long Beach Transit’s Galaxy Express Shuttle.

The shuttle makes its debut for the Galaxy’s final preseason game tonight against the Portland Timbers.

The free shuttle will operate every 10 minutes beginning 90 minutes before kick off and will run through the 15th minute of the game. It will pick up fans from the Blue Line Del Amo Station and Silver Line Harbor Gateway Transit Center. The shuttle will then return fans from the stadium for 45 minutes after the game ends.

The Galaxy will be sharing their space at the StubHub Center with the newly relocated L.A. Chargers come August. No word yet on connecting services for those games. It’s worth noting too that the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) will enter the MLS next year and play at the Expo Line-adjacent Banc of California Stadium, currently being built in Exposition Park.
