Ride the Angels Express to Home Games Beginning April 2
On April 2 and 3, the Angels Express returns to help fans to catch one of baseball’s all-time greatest rivalries when the Angels play the Dodgers. With this special Metrolink service, there’s no need to take the freeway to the freeway series.
Leave the driving to the Angels Express and score a stress-free ride to and from all Angels weeknight home games starting at 7:05 p.m. Avoid traffic and parking hassles by taking the special Metrolink train that drops you off only a few steps from Angel Stadium at the new ARTIC station.
