Train arrives at LAUS (Los Angeles Union Station) at 10:40.
See post #4 above for how to navigate from LAUS to Staples Center.
ML return to Oceanside leaves LAUS at 4:40 PM. So lots of time after the game. (well, hopefully no 3 OT and all)
I'm guessing Amtrak may have earlier return train towards San Diego, but they are more $$ thah ML. But to save some time it may be worth your while. (maybe try Amtrak schedule online or when you arrive at LAUS, see the Amtrak tix office for Sunday schedule).
I'm starting to realize why I don't use public transportation around here. I've used it in Chicago, Toronto and Barcelona and it was easier than this. OK Butch, you're confusing me. If I leave from Fullerton I need to return to Fullerton. Are you saying I have to go to Oceanside?
