Metrolink Experiences Record Ridership during I-405 Closure

This weekend’s numbers are almost 50 percent higher than the same weekend last year and 10 percent higher than the previous weekend record set when Metrolink offered train service to and from the U2 concert in Anaheim (June 17 and 18).
“The availability of public transportation during the closure of I-405 played a significant part in the increases, but there are other factors as well. The popularity of the $10 Weekend Pass (unlimited travel on Metrolink and our partners systems) and the beach trains between San Bernardino and San Clemente, all make a difference,” said Richard Katz, Metrolink Board Chair. “We hope more Southern Californians are learning about their public transportation options, whether they are travelling to work or out to play.”
