Good news bears...

...repeating. This just off an Echo Park neighborhood list serve: The city has done right vis a vis Dodgers traffic and parking.

The City Council has given the green light to a plan for the city to provide shuttle service to Dodger Stadium during home games. Under terms of the plan, which the full Council approved on Friday, June 27, a bus line operated by the city Department of Transportation will travel between Union Station and Dodger Stadium, with stops along Cesar Chavez Avenue and Sunset Boulevard west of Downtown. The stops will be at Figueroa Street, close to several other bus lines, and at Marion Avenue, where the shuttle would connect with two more Metro bus routes. The target date for starting service is July 25. The shuttle will run during all remaining 2008 home games. The estimated cost for the rest of the current season is $70,000, to be paid by the city.

Too good to be true? Let's hope not. A few years ago, before the present Dodgers organization showed up, there was a shuttle service to the stadium from Union Station. It was canceled. Now it's back. Go-o-o-o-o busses!
