Tickets and passes that are available through Ticket Vending Machine™ at Metrolink stations include:

One-Way Ticket

Round-Trip Ticket
Valid for a round-trip on the same day between the origin and destination station. Travel must begin within 3 hours from time of purchase, and end that same day. Ideal for infrequent travelers who complete their trip in one day.

Advance Purchase Ticket
You can now also buy one-way or round-trip tickets for a future date, up to 1 year in advance. All you need to do is select the advance purchase option and choose the date you wish to travel and which ticket type you want. There is one difference between a ticket purchased for same-day travel and an Advance Purchase Ticket. The Advance Purchase Ticket will not have an expiration time printed on it but it is still valid and can be used at any time on the day you chose to travel.

7-Day Pass
The 7-Day Pass is available at all TVMs. The 7-Day Pass is good for seven consecutive days from the purchase date between a set origin and destination. The 7-Day Pass allows for customers to ride unlimited trips between an origin and destination station. The 7-Day Pass is priced at 7 one-way trips. Discounts apply for Senior/Disabled/Medicare (25% off) and Students (10% off). The 7-Day Pass is not available to purchase in advance.

$10 Weekend Pass
This pass is good for unlimited systemwide travel either Saturday or Sunday. The Weekend Day Pass is accepted for free transfers to connecting transit services, except Amtrak. The $10 Weekend Day Pass is available for purchase only on Saturday and Sunday.

Monthly Pass
Valid for unlimited travel between the origin and destination station during the calendar month printed on the pass. Monthly Pass holders also have the ability to ride any Metrolink train from Friday 7 p.m. through 11:59 p.m. Sunday all weekend long, anywhere in the Metrolink system for no additional charge.
