Opening Day at the Ol’ Parking Lot

Just in time for Opening Day, the Los Angeles Dodgers sent out a press release announcing their efforts to make people's experiences at the ballpark more "family-friendly."  Presuming, of course, that family owns a car.

After the Dodgers famously stiffed transit riders by refusing to lift a finger to continue transit bus service provided for free last season by the City of Los Angeles and then dissed the city's efforts as just "a few buses;" it's revealing to see the former Trolley Dodgers celebrating a flatlining of parking fees and new gameday "playbills" for each car coming into the stadium.

For anyone choosing to be car free yet still wants to root for an organization that spends over $20 million dollars for a left fielder but not $400,000 to provide bus service to the stadium for an entire season; as far as we know the bike racks are still located between Lot P and the Stadium.
