Kids Ride Free on Weekends Starting August 29!

If you’re looking for fun, safe and affordable things to do on the weekends, we’re your partner. Metrolink is introducing Kids Ride Free Weekends. Beginning Saturday, August 29, families can take Metrolink to destinations across Southern California on weekends for only $10 per adult, and kids (ages 17 and under) ride free.

Southern California is rich with all kinds of outdoor experiences that are accessible via Metrolink and are just begging to be explored. As we at Metrolink like to say, when you ride the train, the journey is part of the experience – so why not take a rail trip?

The experience is fun for families: sit comfortably (and socially distanced!) on our spacious, clean and disinfected double-decker trains and enjoy the mountain, ocean and city views as you whiz by traffic on your way to your destination. On-board amenities include face-to-face table seating perfect for families and a restroom and two hand sanitizer stations on each train car. Plus, every train has a bike car where you can load up your bikes, surfboards or picnic baskets.

Are you ready? It’s easy to take family trips on Metrolink:

  1. Check our system map to see where we travel, then choose a destination to explore. Maybe it’s one of these bike trails, or the San Clemente Pier. Art lovers might want to go to one of the many destinations showcased in Mural Map LA to see the spectacular street art that makes Southern California so special.
  2. Plan your schedule on our website or our Metrolink Mobile App.
  3. On the day of your weekend trip, purchase a $10 Weekend Day Pass for each adult – contactless on the Metrolink Mobile App or use our new ticket machines at our stations. With every $10 Weekend Day Pass you buy, up to 3 kids, 17 years old and under, ride free – anywhere Metrolink travels.

No ticket is needed for the children, they simply board with their parents. Face masks are required on Metrolink platforms and trains, except for children two years old and under.

Visit to start your SoCal Rail Trip – we’re sure you’ll see it beats the gridlock of a road trip!
