Metrolink Approves Cutting Several Trains from its Schedule
A today's Metrolink Board of Directors meeting, a handful of train lines to Orange County and the Inland Empire were cut, according to transit advocate Ken Ruben, who attended the meeting. Four Saturday and two Sunday trains were cut from the Inland Empire-Orange County Line, leaving one round trip train on each weekend day.The Orange County line lost half of its trains, leave four on each weekend day. The move saves the agencies over $1 million over the next two fiscal years.
Additionally, two weekday off-peak hour Inland Empire-Orange County trains (852 and 853) were cut, saving the agency nearly a million over the next two fiscal years.
The service changes will likely occur in February. Last month, staff recommended cutting more than 50 trains from its schedule to save the agency money and avoid fare increases.
