  • I met up with a friend once at Angels Stadium; I drove and he took Metrolink. There wasn’t a train home, though, so I had to give him a ride.

    @ Adam: Sadly, and up to now you are right. But that is going to change real soon. There was a changing of top management at Metrolink. The new CEO sees opportunity connecting all Southern California attractions including Angel Stadium. Next Tuesday, the All-Star Game will be the initial proof that folks will take the train. There is train service home 30 minutes after the game ends. How about that?
