Riverside Line 25% May Monthly Pass Discount
Letter from the CEO; Re: Riverside Line Monthly Pass Discount
Dear Riverside Line Rider,
I joined Metrolink on January 2 as its new Chief Executive Officer. In my Vision Statement that I provided to Metrolink’s Board of Directors and employees, I committed to put you, our valued customer, first.
Over the past three months, you experienced delays caused by an ongoing freight maintenance project, as well as delays associated with Metrolink’s mechanical issues and incidents. We apologize for the inconvenience during that time.
We recognize the importance of service reliability and that is why we continually strive for a 95 percent on-time performance. We are invested in upgrading our equipment and infrastructure to meet that commitment to you.
This month, the Riverside Line service has returned to normal. We will continue to work with our freight partner to improve our reliability and your travel experience.
As a token of our appreciation for your patience and continued ridership, we will offer a 25% discount on all Riverside Line Monthly Passes in the month of May.
If you need assistance or have additional questions, please call or text (800) 371-5465 (LINK).
Again, I thank you for your continued ridership and cannot overstate how much you mean to the Metrolink family.
Stephanie N. Wiggins, Metrolink Chief Executive Officer

By riding each week day, our Monthly Pass Holders is the group most greatly affected by the Riverside Line on-time performance. We certainly appreciate our riders who purchase One-Way, Round-Trip and 7-Day tickets and passes, which is why on April 10 staff will be on board on 12 Riverside Line trains distributing promotional codes for a free Round-Trip ticket.
Our commitment is to provide a 95% on-time performance across our entire service area. Now that the maintenance project and its residual effects are coming to an end, we will continue to work with Union Pacific Railroad to provide improved service.
