Metrolink MAX
Productive & Frequent Corridor-based Regional Rail Service

Los Angeles County and Southern California continue to lag in making Metrolink more productive and convenient to the passenger. With some modest track improvements, frequent regional rail service can be brought to the San Fernando Valley, Downtown L.A., the Inland Empire, Orange County, San Gabriel Valley and southeast L.A. County from early morning through late night.

The Transit Coalition aims to increase Metrolink train frequencies in the Southland to 30 minutes between trains, including late at night and weekends, through our Metrolink MAX campaign with through service at L.A. Union Station. Imagine having a fast, reliable, cost-effective and productive regional public rail system all throughout Southern California. This can be a reality with your help!

Metrolink Simplified Network

The plan is simple; Metrolink can increase productivity and revenue simply by changing from a "segment" system to a "corridor" system. Instead of having all routes begin and end in Union Station the segments are combined or interlined to create larger corridors. The Orange County and Ventura County Line segments would be combined as would the Antelope Valley and San Bernardino Lines with an extension to Fullerton. Basically, the high-frequency lines would continue through Union Station after a stop instead of just terminating there.

Metrolink Max's mission is to empower you to fight for trains every 30 minutes along the Ventura County, San Bernardino and Antelope Valley Lines with through service at L.A. Union Station! Metrolink MAX would yield many great benefits that cannot be attained while Metrolink service remains segmented and rush-hour-oriented.

Act Now!

As a first line of action, we need you to write a letter to the Metro Board that shows your support of 30-minute headways and corridor-based runs on Metrolink trains from Chatsworth to Laguna Niguel and elsewhere. For greater ease, you can also fill out postcards and send them off to your respective four Metro Board members. Your letters can instill interest in regional rail by bringing it to the attention of transportation leaders.

You can also download, print, cut and distribute these postcards for Ventura County Line and Antelope Valley Line users, addressed to Metrolink Boardmembers and asking them to preserve service. You can even complete this online petition.
