LOS ANGELES – Metrolink today announced it will offer special Angels Express train service to Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim home games to help fans avoid traffic congestion and parking hassles.
The Angels Express round-trip train tickets are $7 for adults, $6 for seniors/disabled/Medicare, $4 for youth ages 6-18, while children ages five and under are free with a paying adult with a limit of three per adult.
The Angels Express service begins with the Monday, March 25 pre-season game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Angels Express will service all 49 Angels weekday home games that start at 7:07 p.m.
“The Angels Express is a fun, comfortable and stress-free way to get to the games without the headaches of traffic and parking,” said Metrolink CEO Stephanie Wiggins.
Fans can take the northbound Metrolink Orange County (OC) Line train 643 originating at the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Station to the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center, better known as ARTIC, for the short walk to the stadium. The return trip is on southbound Metrolink train 644, which departs 30 minutes after the game ends.
On Friday nights only, beginning April 5, Metrolink will add special service on the 91/Perris Valley Line from the Perris-South station. Passengers transfer at the Orange Station to northbound OC Line train 643 to Anaheim. Also, one northbound train is added on Friday nights from Anaheim to Los Angeles Union Station for those who take regularly-scheduled service to the game.
The Angels Express train service is funded by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC).
