The Angels Express Is Back!
Say "Goodbye" to fighting traffic and paying for parking.
The Angels Express special train service is back again this season! Beginning April 9, 2013, you can ride the Angels Express to all Angels weekday home games that start at 7:05 p.m. and for every Friday night game on the Inland Empire-Orange County Line.
Ride to and from Angel Stadium for a very special price - only $7 roundtrip, $6 for senior/disabled, $4 for youth (ages 6 – 18), and free for children 5 and under with a paying adult (up to 3 children). The train takes you straight to the stadium's parking lot so you're just a short walk away. Save money on parking and gas, forget about the crowded stadium parking lot, and leave your car behind!
