Codeshare Trains

What's a Codeshare?

Metrolink is working with Amtrak Pacific Surfliner to make more trains available so you can travel when it's convenient for you. Metrolink, in partnership with Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, created codeshare for Ventura County Line riders between Los Angeles and Ventura.
