Passengers Will Board at New Platforms Near the Depot in San Bernardino
LOS ANGELES – Following a three-week closure of the San Bernardino Depot, Metrolink trains will resume service to the San Bernardino and Rialto stations on April 17. The closure was needed for crews to remove and construct new tracks and a new elevator and overpass as part of an extension of the railroad to Downtown San Bernardino. This project is being managed by the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority.
On Monday, riders at the San Bernardino station will board their train and can get their boarding passes at the new platforms located near the actual depot. There will be staff and signs directing riders to the new boarding areas. Some construction work will continue for the next several weeks as crews complete the elevator and overpass, as well as upgrade the messaging system.
Metrolink implemented a new schedule on April 3 which contained minor changes to some trains. Riders should verify the new schedule to ensure they arrive on time for their train. Metrolink thanks riders and the surrounding community for their patience during this work.
Metrolink encourages riders to sign up for electronic updates through www.metrolinktrains.com, social media or Metrolink’s Mobile App.
