Metrolink partnered with the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency, which manages the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner service, to expand the existing codeshare program. The new expanded codeshare reciprocity will run as a pilot program currently slated to end June 30, 2024.
“Thank you to our LOSSAN and Amtrak Pacific Surfliner partners for building synergy between our services to deliver more convenient transit options for riders traveling between Ventura and Los Angeles,” said Metrolink CEO Darren Kettle. “I hope we can build on this pilot program and extend similar benefits to riders traveling between Oceanside and Ventura, as we work to expand regional mobility like never before.”
Expanded Rail Options
Customers with valid tickets for either rail service now have a total of 30 weekday Metrolink and Pacific Surfliner train options between Los Angeles and Ventura County, making train travel even more convenient along Metrolink’s Ventura Line corridor.
There are 14 total trains for rail passengers through that corridor on Saturdays and Sundays. Previously, Metrolink Ventura County Line ticket holders could only ride select Amtrak Pacific Surfliner trains between Los Angeles and Ventura.
Pacific Surfliner ticket holders are also able to board 30 Metrolink Antelope Valley Line weekday trains that operate between Union Station and the Burbank-Downtown Station, and another 24 that operate on Saturdays and Sundays.
