Change expected to improve service and reduce train congestion.
LOS ANGELES – Beginning Monday, June 6, Metrolink will change its schedule to improve service and reduce train congestion. Metrolink’s 91 Line, Antelope Valley Line, Inland Empire-Orange County Line, Orange County Line, Riverside Line and Ventura County Line all will be effected. There will be no changes to the San Bernardino Line.
The June 6 schedule changes were made in coordination with rail partners Amtrak and the North County Transit District, along with Union Pacific Railroad and BNSF Railway.
The most wide-spread changes to Metrolink service will occur on routes that connect to the 351-mile Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor (LOSSAN Corridor), which travels through a six-county coastal region in Southern California. The LOSSAN Agency is staffed by the Orange County Transportation Authority. The schedule adjustments along the LOSSAN Corridor were funded in part by Caltrans to enhance rail movement in the region.
Metrolink operates trains between Ventura and Oceanside along this route and also offers the Rail 2 Rail® program, which allows Metrolink Monthly Pass holders along the Orange County and Ventura County lines to travel on Amtrak Pacific Surfliner trains within the station pairs of their pass at no additional charge.
