LOS ANGELES – For the first time since the 2019 Major League Baseball season, Los Angeles Angels fans will be able to take Metrolink to select home games, leaving their cars and the hassle of sitting in traffic at home. Metrolink’s special Angels Express service is returning on the Orange County (OC) and Inland Empire-Orange County (IEOC) lines for 42 games this season, including all regularly scheduled Friday, Saturday and Sunday Angels home games.

“We’re thrilled to announce the long-awaited return of our Angels Express service for the 2024 season,” Metrolink CEO Darren Kettle said. “As two of America’s great pastimes, taking the train and baseball go hand in hand, and we look forward to once again connecting Southern Californians with the sights and sounds of the ballpark – and the memories made there.”

Adult roundtrip tickets are $10 per person, while up to three kids ages 17 and under can ride free with each paying adult, making the Angels Express an affordable option for families. By riding the Angels Express, passengers can also enjoy the camaraderie of traveling with other Angels fans while Metrolink does the work of getting them to and from the stadium.

In addition to Angels’ Friday, Saturday and Sunday games, the Angels Express will be in service for all three matchups with the crosstown Los Angeles Dodgers at Angel Stadium in 2024. That includes a preseason game on Tuesday, March 26. The Angels’ regular season will begin April 5 against the Boston Red Sox with Angels Express trains running throughout opening weekend.

Metrolink’s Anaheim stop at the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) is adjacent to Angel Stadium, allowing for a short walk to the ballpark. For the first time, Angels Express service on the IEOC Line, which will originate at the Riverside-Downtown Station, will take passengers directly to Anaheim without requiring a transfer to an OC Line train. Angels Express service on the OC Line will operate from LA Union Station and Oceanside to Anaheim.

Angels Express tickets can be purchased on the Metrolink mobile app or at any Metrolink ticket machine on the day of the game. Return trains will depart Anaheim Station 30 minutes after the final out. On Saturday Night Fireworks promotional nights, trains will leave 30 minutes after the conclusion of the fireworks show.

The Angels Express service is funded by Metrolink member agencies the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC).

Tam T. Nguyen, OCTA Chair

“Fans have responded to the Angels Express in a big way in years past and we’re excited to partner with Metrolink to bring it back with even more options for getting to and from the ballpark. It’s affordable, convenient and a great way to travel with family and friends. The Angels are Orange County’s team. And because they also draw from L.A. and the Inland Empire, riding the rails from all those destinations helps reduce traffic and improve regional air quality.”

Lloyd White, RCTC Chair

“This is a home run for Angel baseball fans in Riverside County. We are excited to offer an easy way to get to and from Angel Stadium for weekend home games this upcoming season. The return of the Angels Express provides a special way for our families to enjoy an evening at the ballpark, and RCTC is happy to continue this partnership with Metrolink, OCTA, and LA Metro to help families create wonderful memories together.”
