Transit Connections

There are hundreds of connections you can make with your valid Metrolink ticket including city bus, shuttle bus, light rail, and subway lines.

By special arrangement with transit systems throughout Southern California, your Metrolink ticket takes you farther than ever before. Most of these connections are free with your valid Metrolink ticket.

Three Simple Rules:

  1. All Metrolink tickets must be stamped with today’s date to be valid for boarding connecting transit (Monthly Passes must be for the current month).
  2. Metrolink tickets are good for free rides on most local transit services only. An additional fare payment may be required for express or other non-local bus service.
  3. Just show your Metrolink ticket to the driver or attendant upon boarding your connecting transit service.

Here’s more information on all participating transit services and some important tips to help you complete your trip and get the best value from your Metrolink ticket:

In Los Angeles County, the EZ transit pass program allows Metrolink riders with valid Metrolink tickets unlimited free rides on participating operators' local services - any time, any day, any station, any direction of travel. Local service includes all Metro Rail routes and stations, Metro Rapid bus and Metro Local bus. An additional fare for express services may be required (e.g. Metro Silver Line).

EZ transit pass travel does not require a direct transfer between Metrolink and connecting bus and rail lines. Remember, your Metrolink ticket must be for today’s date to be valid for travel on any of the participating EZ transit pass operators’ local services, but the time limits on One-Way and Round-Trip Metrolink tickets don’t apply to connecting EZ transit pass services. Ticket time limits are only for your trip onboard Metrolink trains.
