Celebrate 25 years of service in Orange County this month!
Since 1994, Metrolink has played an essential role in Orange County transportation. Over the decades, annual boardings on Metrolink’s Orange County Line have grown to over 2.8 million. People continue to choose this reliable passenger rail service to connect with employment centers and weekend adventures.
Thanks to funding from OC Go, Orange County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation
improvements, the Orange County Line was expanded to meet demand over and over again. This sales tax has funded new and remodeled stations such as Buena Park in 2007 or the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center in 2014, new parking expansions like the new Orange Station Parking Structure in February, special service trains like the Angels Express, Quiet Zones and expanded weekday and weekend service.
A special thanks to riders for growing average boardings to more than 10,000 per day and using Metrolink as a weekend travel partner to experience the wonderful adventures Orange County has to offer, from theme parks to beaches to biking trails.
