When we reduced our service in March due to COVID-19, we did so keeping in mind the need to preserve service during peak periods, maintain as many connections as possible and still ensure adequate space for social distancing. These fundamentals are still guiding our service schedules, so we’re happy to let you know that we’ve added two trains back on the Metrolink schedule.
Ventura County Line trains 101 and 110 again connect riders between Los Angeles and Moorpark, with stops in Glendale, Burbank, Northridge, Van Nuys, Chatsworth and Simi Valley. This restored service also provides a morning connection from Los Angeles to Ventura County, which was lost when we first implemented temporary service reductions.
In case you’ve missed it, based on your feedback and to help ensure you feel safe and have a great Metrolink experience, we’ve created some new solutions:
- At the beginning of the month, we told you about our new 5-Day Flex Pass which lets you travel on the days you need to with five one-day passes you can use whenever you want within 30 days from the date of purchase. And it’s a 10% discount off the cost of one-way and round-trip tickets. You can get it exclusively on the Metrolink Mobile App for safe, contactless ticketing.
- We also have our How Full Is My Train? tool, which makes it easy for you to check past ridership levels before you take the train, so you feel comfortable you’ll have space for recommended social distancing.
- And we’ve stepped up our cleaning and disinfecting processes, equipped each passenger car with two hand sanitizer stations and now require face masks aboard Metrolink trains and on station platforms.
We value your input and your ridership. Thank you for helping Metrolink become a smarter, better and even more essential part of our Southern California lifestyle.
