Metrolink providing regular service on Presidents Day, Monday, February 17
Presidents Day is celebrated on the third Monday in February; and this year it falls on Monday, February 17!
Metrolink is offering its regular service schedule at normal fares for Presidents Day.
Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, the holiday became popularly known as Presidents Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents, past and present.
