Metrolink Introduces New Logo
LOS ANGELES – Starting this month, Metrolink will have a new look. The agency recently rolled out its new logo inspired by the Tier 4 locomotives, which represent Metrolink’s commitment to safety, environmental sustainability and innovation. The icon also pays tribute to the past, its evolution and a bright future.
The three lines portrayed in the logo have a dual meaning symbolizing the passenger rail’s original lines that started Metrolink operation in 1992 (Ventura, San Bernardino and Antelope Valley lines) and represent the agency’s future as the lines shape the profile of a Tier 4 locomotive. Furthermore, the color teal has been Metrolink’s standard color since Metrolink’s founding in 1992. Gray and black were adopted after the purchase of the Rotem passenger cars.
