Maintenance and track projects will improve system safety and reliability

LOS ANGELES – For three consecutive weekends, May 6-7, May 13-14 and May 20-21, Metrolink’s Antelope Valley Line will only operate four trains each day due to track maintenance. The projects will ensure continued rail safety of Metrolink’s riders.

During this time, trains will operate between the Sylmar/San Fernando Station and Los Angeles Union Station, with connecting bus service to and from the Lancaster, Palmdale, Vincent Grade/Acton, Via Princessa, Santa Clarita and Newhall stations. 

Buses will depart on train schedule times, with possible delays. Regular weekend train service will resume by Saturday, May 27.
