Metrolink is committed to protecting the environment in Southern California, embracing social responsibility, creating economic vitality and enhancing the quality of life for the communities we serve. We work with transportation agencies throughout the region to offer our riders sustainable and efficient ways to reach their Southern California destinations.
Taking the train is the smartest, cleanest and greenest way to travel.
A study is in process to analyze the future climate risks on Metrolink’s systemwide infrastructure and facilities, including those impacts anticipated on surrounding populations and disadvantaged communities.
The timing for this study is critical because Metrolink has begun a 10-year investment in a slate of projects known as the Southern California Optimized Rail Expansion (SCORE) Program. To safeguard these investments over their useful life, which ranges from 20-100 years, it is essential that they be protected from expected climate change impacts.
This investment program is also a significant opportunity to increase the overall resilience of the Metrolink system and the populations it serves. The final climate adaptation implementation plan will be completed by January 2022.Download Now
