SoCal Explorer Rewards
Introducing a new rewards program for all Metrolink riders!
Ride. Redeem. Repeat.
Take a ride on Metrolink, earn points towards another. It's easy and it's free. You can now earn points for every mile you travel on Metrolink, then redeem them for free tickets. It’s Metrolink’s way of giving back to riders.
For a limited time, you’ll receive 750 free SoCal Explorer points when you sign up.
(That’s enough points for a free round-trip ticket!)
How It Works
It’s easy to turn your everyday trips into free tickets. The more you travel, the quicker you earn and redeem points for more.
Points & Rewards
As a SoCal Explorer member you’ll earn 1 point per mile and during your weekend adventures you earn 50 points no matter where your trip takes you.
