Community Alert: Metrolink – Major Construction and Maintenance Projects to Impact October Weekend Service
Orange County, Inland-Empire County and 91/Perris Valley lines to be affected
Metrolink will experience major service interruptions the second, third and fourth weekends in October due to several coordinated major construction and maintenance projects that will improve safety and reliability for Metrolink passengers.
Scheduled annual maintenance will take place the weekends of October 8-9, 15-16 and 22-23, and will substantially impact service on the Orange County, Inland Empire-Orange County and 91/Perris Valley lines.
Customers are advised there will be limited transportation alternatives which may experience delays. Metrolink is working to supplement limited train service with buses to provide transportation to passengers without other options.
Orange County Line
Two round-trip trains will operate between Norwalk and Irvine, with bus bridge service to stations between Los Angeles and Norwalk. A southbound bus bridge will serve stations between Irvine and Oceanside. A northbound bus bridge will depart Oceanside and make all stops into Los Angeles Union Station. Extensive delays with bus arrival/departure times can be expected.
Inland Empire-Orange County Line
No train service on the Inland Empire-Orange County Line. One round-trip will be offered by bus. This service will not have connecting service for passengers planning to go to Los Angeles. Riders choosing to take this service should plan for an extended trip time and severe delays.
91/Perris Valley Line
Two round-trip trains will operate between Norwalk and Riverside, with bus bridge service between Los Angeles and Norwalk. Delays can be expected. For additional details on Metrolink, please visit www.metrolinktrains.com.
