New transportation center unveiled at Dodger Stadium
continued effort to improve the Dodger fan experience, the Los Angeles Dodgers
have unveiled a new
Center at Dodger Stadium.
The hub, now in full operation, is located at the Stadium on the Club Level at
the top of the escalators. The Dodgers created the facility in partnership with
KFWB News 980, the Department of Transportation and Standard Parking. The
Center is also connected to CALTRANS and
the Los Angeles Police Department to further ensure accuracy.
Center at Dodger Stadium enables us to
provide our fans with the must updated and accurate information as they make
their way to and from Dodger Stadium,” said Dodger Owner and Chairman
Frank McCourt. “From this hub, we are able to connect and coordinate
multiple transportation authorities and partners and provide a safer and more
efficient parking system for all Dodger fans.”
As part of
this system, all 255 acres of Dodger Stadium parking lots are monitored by
cameras that provide a full view of all parking lot entrances and exists from
multiple vantage points. KFWB traffic reporters now provide LIVE traffic and
parking updates via KFWB News 980 and Dodger Radio 1610 AM. KFWB News 980’s
Richard Turnage and Doug Dunlap provide stadium traffic reports prior to
“Covering the Bases” and during “Covering the Bases”
Turnage and Dunlap relate stadium traffic reports every ten minutes. A constant
flow of traffic and parking information is also broadcasted on Dodger Radio
1610 AM, a newly dedicated station.
Center is manned by a transportation
manager and a parking manager who are connected to approximately 200 parking
and security officers throughout Dodger Stadium. In addition, more than 40
Department of Transportation engineers and traffic officers are plugged into
Center providing traffic
and parking updates from outside the Stadium. The hub also uses multiple
resources to monitor all traffic throughout the greater
Los Angeles area.
