Commuters can save almost $100 a month with new low fares; Students and seniors get a 50 percent discount
LOS ANGELES – Starting July 1, 2018, all tickets on the San Bernardino Line will be discounted at least 25 percent, except for the weekend pass and special tickets. Students and seniors get discounts up to 50 percent.
This discount will result in major savings for current and future Metrolink riders. A regular monthly pass from Covina to Los Angeles costs $217. With the 25 percent discount, the same monthly pass would cost $161.00, while students and senior citizens will pay only $120.75 under the fare discount program.
The San Bernardino Line, one of Metrolink’s busiest lines, is a vital corridor serving the San Gabriel Valley with stops at Los Angeles Union Station, Cal State LA, El Monte, Baldwin Park, Covina, Pomona, Claremont, Montclair, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, Rialto, San Bernardino Depot and Downtown San Bernardino.
The discounted fare has an initial period of six months.
This discount was a result of a motion led by Metrolink Board Director and LA County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, with support from Metrolink Board 2nd Vice-Chair and Glendale Councilmember Ara Najarian, as well as Directors LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger and LA Councilman Paul Krekorian. The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) boards are funding the discount.
Starting Monday, June 25, 2018, monthly passes purchased through ticket vending machines and ticket windows are available with the 25 percent discount.
All mobile tickets are available with the 25 percent discount starting Sunday, July 1, 2018.
