    Service Update

    Starting Date: 12/30/2022
    Ending Date: 1/29/2023

    Planned Advisory for the Orange County and Inland Empire-Orange County Lines

    Orange County and Inland Empire-Orange County Lines Track Closure Jan. 7-8 and Jan. 28-29

    Due to maintenance and rehabilitation projects, Orange County and Inland Empire-Orange County line service will be interrupted on Saturday and Sunday, January 7-8, and Saturday and Sunday, January 29-29, 2023.

    On both weekends, trains will not operate south of the Laguna Niguel/ Mission Viejo Station.

    Alternate bus transportation will NOT be provided.

    We apologize that necessary infrastructure enhancements sometimes result in track closures that we know may be inconvenient for our riders. This work is needed to ensure the safety and reliability of the system.

     

    Friday, October 21, 2022

    Starting Saturday, Oct. 29, Metrolink weekend trains along both lines will resume service to and from the San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, and San Clemente Pier stations.

    Emergency work to stabilize the hillside south of the San Clemente Pier is beginning soon, and weekend service connecting to the Oceanside Station remains suspended.


    Thursday, September 29, 2022

    Unfortunately, continued movement to the right of way in the San Clemente area is forcing Metrolink to suspend Orange County Line and Inland Empire-Orange County Line service south of the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Station beginning Friday and until further notice.

    Working with geologists, geotechnical engineers, and surveyors, we have determined to ensure passenger safety service suspension is necessary. Until we have confirmation from the experts the slope movement has stopped, we will not resume Metrolink service.

    Below is Metrolink’s adjusted service schedule beginning Friday morning:

    • Orange County Line:
      • All Orange County Line trains will operate as scheduled between the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Station and Los Angeles Union Station, with no alternate transportation to or from San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente or Oceanside.
    • Inland Empire-Orange County Line:
      • All Inland Empire-Orange County Line trains will operate as scheduled between Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo and San Bernardino, with no alternate transportation to or from San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente or Oceanside.

    We appreciate your patience and thank you for your continued ridership. As we learn more, we will share those details with you via email, our social media channels and on this webpage. For more detailed service information, you can call or text 800-371-5465 (LINK).

    Schedule Update

    Minor Schedule Change Along Orange County Line

    On October 24, 2022, Metrolink will introduce a new schedule that will include minor changes to weekend service on the Orange County Line.

    There will be no changes to the Antelope Valley, San Bernardino, Riverside, 91/Perris Valley or Inland Empire/Orange County lines.

    To coordinate with two new Amtrak Pacific Surfliner trains, Metrolink has made minor schedule adjustments to Orange County Line weekend trains 667 and 668.
