Metrolink makes going to the L.A. County Fair easy and affordable
Southern Californians can save money and reduce hassle by taking a Metrolink train to the L.A. County Fair. On Saturdays and Sundays, from Sept. 3 until Oct. 2, Metrolink will make a special stop at the Fairplex platform, between the Pomona and Covina stations, on the San Bernardino Line on Saturdays and Sundays.
Metrolink riders can save money by purchasing a $10 adult fair admission ticket (regularly $17) valid for Saturday or Sunday online at Metrolink Rewards (www.metrolinkrewards.com). Up to three kids (5 years old and younger) ride free with an adult using a valid Metrolink ticket.
Metrolink’s $10 Weekend Pass is good for unlimited travel on the Metrolink system from 7 p.m. on Fridays until midnight on Sundays. The Weekend Pass also includes free transfers to other regional bus and rail service. Weekend passes can be purchased at ticket vending machines located at any Metrolink station and LA Union Station. Metrolink Monthly Passholders can ride Metrolink trains on the weekend at no additional charge.
To get to the fair, take Metrolink’s San Bernardino Line train to the special Fairplex Platform located at the fair. A free shuttle will take you to the Yellow Gate where a day of fun will begin. Please allow 30-45 minutes to travel to the train station from the Yellow Gate when returning. Click here to see the full train schedule.
