Dodger Express Check LA Dodgers/Juan Ocampo

Councilman Eric Garcetti, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Dodgers Owner Frank McCourt, County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, Metro Board Chairman Ara Najarian and Councilman Ed Reyes pose with a check to cover Dodger Stadium transit service back in March.

The Dodgers may not have had all that successful of a season, but Metro is pleased with the results of its Dodger Stadium Express.

According to a press release issued on Tuesday, the shuttle service from Union Station carried 117,523 passengers during its year in operation.

The line was funded by a $300,000 grant aimed at supporting air quality. According to the release, 60 percent of riders used transit to access the shuttle service.

Despite the success, a return in 2011 remains dependent on securing new funding.
