New schedule to improve reliability and customer service

LOS ANGELES – Metrolink will change its weekday schedule on three lines beginning Monday, April 4 to improve service and meet the needs of the highest percentage of riders. The entire San Bernardino Line schedule will be adjusted, while the 91 Line and the Ventura County Line will both have minor changes.

“We are confident the new schedule will accommodate a great majority of our passengers,” said Metrolink CEO Art Leahy. “We continually seek feedback from our riders to improve our system and feel these changes reflect their input.”

The San Bernardino Line will continue to have 38 weekday trains. However, the new schedule will allow more trains to arrive to and depart from Los Angeles Union Station during the peak commute periods in the morning and evening. This adjustment will lower the probability of train overcrowding and increase rider options during those times.
