Calif. Metrolink opens new parking structure

Posted on October 14, 2011

A new 823-space Metrolink parking structure is now open for business in Tustin, Calif.

Serving approximately 800 daily passengers, the station has enhanced its parking facilities to account for anticipated future growth. The parking lot previously accommodated 300 vehicles and was at capacity.

The five-level structure features energy efficient LED lighting, solar panels on the roof to power the facility and electronic signage at the entrance to display where parking spots are available.

The Orange County (Calif.) Transportation Authority's (OCTA) Measure M contributed $8.25 million, with an additional $9.35 million in state funds to build the new parking garage. The structure came in 13 percent under budget for a total cost of $15.4 million.
