Angels Express Rail Service Returns for 2017 Season

ORANGE – Baseball fans will again be able to hop aboard the Angels Express train this season to quickly get to and from Angels games, beginning with the first pre-season home games against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday and Friday, March 30 and 31.

The special Metrolink train service, in partnership with the Orange County Transportation Authority, allows fans to avoid traffic jams and save on gas and money by skipping the car trip and parking fees.

Service to Anaheim’s ARTIC station, immediately adjacent to Angel Stadium of Anaheim, will run along the Orange County Line – from Los Angeles Union Station and from the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo station – for weeknight home games starting at 7:07 p.m.

Service from Riverside County is also available for Friday night home games, with a transfer at the Orange train station to Anaheim. Angels Express trains arrive at least 30 minutes before the first pitch and the return trains leave 30 minutes after the final out.

The regular price is $7 round-trip, tickets for seniors and disabled riders are $6, and children ages 6 to 18 years are $4. Children 5 and under ride free with an adult fare.

“We’re very happy to see the Angels Express return for another season, offering fans a stress-free option for getting to and from games,” said OCTA Chairman Michael Hennessey. “The service has grown in popularity over the years and we encourage new fans to give it a try and see how convenient and affordable riding the train can be.”

To celebrate the start of the regular season, OCTA is hosting a pre-game Kickoff Rally at the Irvine Metrolink Station, 15215 Barranca Parkway, on Friday, April 7, prior to the Angels home opener against the Seattle Mariners.

The kickoff celebration begins at 4:30 p.m. and will feature free music and prizes. Angels Express trains will depart Irvine for the game at 5:17 p.m. and 6:05 p.m.

Last year, more than 42,000 fans got to an Angels game by using the service, which is made possible again this season by a $250,000 grant from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee.

Throughout the season, OCTA will be giving away free prizes and some Angels Express tickets and offering special deals. Fans are encouraged to check the website often to participate. For more information on those give-aways and on train schedules to games, visit
