Minor changes to Ventura County, San Bernardino, 91/PV and IE-OC lines only
LOS ANGELES – On Monday, April 3, Metrolink will implement minor changes to the schedules on its 91/Perris Valley, Inland Empire-Orange County (IE-OC), San Bernardino and Ventura County lines to improve service. However, due to the ongoing construction at the San Bernardino and Rialto stations, the schedule for those two stations will not go into effect until April 17 when regular train service resumes. There will be no changes to the Antelope Valley, Riverside or Orange County line trains.
As part of Metrolink's Rail 2 Rail® Program, which allows Metrolink Monthly Pass holders along the Orange and Ventura County corridors to travel on Amtrak Pacific Surfliner trains at no additional charge, riders will see changes of up to 11 minutes to seven Amtrak trains (Amtrak 761, 763, 565, 567, 769, 777 and 562). Please see below for an overview of the adjustments by line. To see the new schedule, please visit www.metrolinktrains.com/ScheduleChange.
SB Line Adjustments: In preparation for the San Bernardino Line’s extension to the new San Bernardino-Downtown Station later this year, all weekday arrival and departure times for trains to and from the current San Bernardino Station will be adjusted by up to five minutes. Weekday trains 314, 316 and 331 will also have slight changes to departure times from stations along the route. Saturday night San Bernardino Line train 379 is the only weekend train that will have an adjusted schedule. The San Bernardino to L.A. Union Station train will operate five minutes later, departing San Bernardino at 9:20 p.m. and arriving at Union Station at 11 p.m.
IE-OC Line Adjustments: Metrolink’s IE-OC Line will also be adjusted with the future connection to the San Bernardino-Downtown Station. All IE-OC weekday arrival and departure times for trains to and from the current San Bernardino Station will be adjusted by no more than five minutes. Also, weekday train 803 will depart Anaheim Canyon and Orange up to five minutes earlier to improve service. The train’s remaining station arrival and departure times will not change. There will be no April 3 schedule changes to Inland Empire-Orange County Line weekend trains.
VC Line Adjustments: Ventura County Line train 104 will depart the Burbank-Airport, Burbank-Downtown and Glendale stations one to two minutes earlier to reduce passenger wait times, while still arriving to Los Angeles Union Station at 7:51 a.m. Ventura County Line trains 119 and 121 will also reduce station wait times by departing Northridge and remaining stations three to five minutes earlier.
91/PV Line Adjustments: Weekday 91/Perris Valley Line train 701 will depart Fullerton, Buena Park and Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs two minutes later to avoid conflicts with Amtrak service, while allowing the train to continue to arrive at Los Angeles Union Station at 7:05 a.m. There will be no changes to the 91/Perris Valley Line weekend schedule.
