The Dodger Trolley is set to make its first runs on Friday, as the team opens a homestand against the Washington Nationals. The free service will provide shuttles from Union Station to Dodger Stadium for each of the team's 32 remaining home games.

The program was approved in June after much debate, with the city of Los Angeles picking up the $70,000 tab for operating the service in 2008.

Shuttle buses will pick up passengers on Alameda, in front of Union Station. They will make two stops enroute -- at Figueroa street and Marion avenue -- before entering the stadium and unloading behind Center Field. Buses will start running 90 minutes before game time, and run 60 minutes after the game ends, with a bus running approximately every 10 minutes.

The city and the team hope that service in future seasons will be funded by advertising on the buses.
