For the second season, LA Galaxy have teamed up with Long Beach Transit to provide a free game day bus shuttle, the Galaxy Express, to and from all LA Galaxy home soccer games at StubHub Center.
The Galaxy Express begins operation on Saturday, February 10, 2018 for the Galaxy’s first pre-season home game against NYCFC.
“Improving fan experience on game days is extremely important to us and we believe providing a convenient and accessible free bus shuttle to StubHub Center is an essential element in that,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein. “The Galaxy Express provides an additional transportation and parking method to fans and supporters traveling to LA Galaxy matches at the StubHub Center.”
The Galaxy Express operates every 10 minutes beginning 90 minutes before kick off and running through the match’s 15th minute. For return trips, the Galaxy Express resumes at the match’s 75thminute through 45 minutes after the final whistle. The Galaxy Express picks up soccer fans from the Harbor Gateway Transit Center, 731 W. 182nd St., Gardena, where there are 980 free parking spaces, and the Metro Blue Line Del Amo Station, 20220 Santa Fe Ave., Los Angeles, where there are 332 free spaces.
“The Galaxy Express takes soccer fans directly to the front gates of the StubHub Center using a transit-only lane, allowing them to avoid traffic at the venue,” said Long Beach Transit President and CEO Kenneth McDonald. “Fans who use the free Galaxy Express also help reduce the impacts of congestion and pollution in and around the stadium.”
Galaxy fans are encouraged to take the Metro Silver Line to the Harbor Gateway Transit Center or take the Metro Blue Line to the Del Amo Station. Metro fares are $2.50 per boarding for the Silver Line and $1.75 to board the Blue Line. Transit customers should buy round-trip fares to avoid waiting in lines for the return trip.
