Metrolink tickets and passes are non-refundable and non-replaceable. However, refund requests are considered on a case-by-case basis, under certain conditions:

  • Verified Ticketing Vending Machine (TVM) malfunctions that cause monetary loss.
  • Other verified circumstances that are beyond a customer’s control (i.e., medical reasons, loss of employment, and stolen property).

Lost or damaged fare media is non-refundable.

Note: Compensation for service disruptions are issued for qualifying delays under the Quality Service Pledge.

Refund Requests are subject to the following conditions:

  • If you are requesting a refund for a paper ticket or pass, you must submit the original ticket to Metrolink to be considered. Mailing instructions are in the Paper Ticket Refund Request Form (see below). Copies are not accepted and may result in the denial of your request.
  • Refunds are prorated beginning on the date of ticket purchase.
    • Paper ticket refunds are prorated through the postmark date on the envelope containing the pass.
      • Monthly passes are fully refundable if the request and original pass are postmarked before the first of the month printed on the pass.
    • Mobile ticket refunds are prorated through the date the request was submitted via the Mobile Ticket Refund Request Form, or the date of last use, whichever is later.
    • Proration for Regular, Student, Youth, and Military passes is calculated using weekday round-trip fare for the fare type between the stations printed on the pass.
    • Proration for Senior/Disabled/Medicare passes is calculated using the 25% discount applied to the pass.
