Frequently Asked Questions

Metrolink is introducing a new schedule update that addresses changes in customer travel habits we have observed even as more of our community begins to re-open. This includes a distinct shift in peak ridership times, which have shifted to earlier in the morning. At the same time, the percentage of midday trips has increased slightly. Metrolink is restoring service to some early morning trains to provide additional commuting options, temporarily suspending trains from the schedule that have low ridership, and re-introducing the San Bernardino Line’s Express train, which we know riders miss.

Metrolink will continue to monitor ridership on all our routes. As customer demand increases, we will evaluate our service levels to determine when and where to add back service. We can bring back service pretty quickly, as needed.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, ridership levels dropped by more than 90 percent across all lines, Ridership has since increased slowly – and as of October 2020 our ridership is down around 80% (each line varies). During this time, we have been monitoring and evaluating ridership levels to determine when and where service is most needed. We are adding trains to our schedule to meet rider demand. And we are temporarily suspending trains with consistently low ridership so we can provide the additional service our customers demand.

Ventura County Line trains 100 and 121 will be added back to the schedule. Train 100 provides an early morning train from Ventura County and the San Fernando Valley to Los Angeles while train 121 offers the final return trip home for Ventura County and San Fernando Valley residents.

Ventura County Line trains 900, 901, 905 106 and 123 have been temporarily suspended from the schedule due to low ridership.

The Hollywood Burbank Airport has experienced a passenger drop-off similar to Metrolink’s, resulting in significantly fewer people taking those trains. Before COVID-19, Metrolink’s 900 series trains were among the lowest ridership trains on the Ventura County Line. Temporary suspension of these trains allows Metrolink to restore service of trains 100 and 121, which also serve the Hollywood Burbank Airport and several additional stops including Van Nuys and Chatsworth. In total, there are 30 train options each weekday that serve the Hollywood Burbank Airport.

The entire Antelope Valley Line schedule has been adjusted with trains departing at consistent and memorable intervals that are easier for riders to remember, which will also provide for easier transfers to other trains and transit systems at Los Angeles Union Station. For example, each train departing Lancaster will depart at either 11 or 41 minutes past the hour, while all Antelope Valley Line trains departing Union Station will leave at 39 minutes past the hour. This is an initial step in Metrolink’s long-range objective to provide consistent departure times from all stations.

The entire San Bernardino Line schedule has been adjusted with trains departing at more consistent intervals, which will that are easier for riders to remember, which will also provide for easier transfers to other trains and transit providers at Los Angeles Union Station.

Additional changes to the San Bernardino Line:

  • San Bernardino Line trains 311 and 324 have been converted to Express Trains with stops at the San Bernardino-Depot, Rancho Cucamonga, Montclair, Covina, Cal State L.A. and Los Angeles Union Station.
  • Late-night Saturday trains 378 and 379 have been temporarily suspended due to low ridership.
  • There are no changes to Sunday train service.

Metrolink riders have long requested the reinstatement of Express Trains along the San Bernardino Line. Limiting the station stops for trains 311 and 324 was the most cost-effective way to bring back Express Train service. With travel times 20 minutes shorter and limited stops, many riders see the Express Train as a welcome improvement for their commute.

Trains 405 and 412 have been temporarily suspended due to low ridership. Train 407 will depart 15 minutes earlier to provide an option for displaced passengers.

Orange County Line trains 632, 633, 682, and 687 have been temporarily suspended due to low ridership. There are no changes to the Orange County Line weekend train service.

IEOC Line train 817 will be added back to the schedule to provide afternoon service from the Inland Empire to Orange County. IEOC Line train 813 will be temporarily suspended due to low ridership. There are no changes to the IEOC Line weekend train service.
