Metrolink overhauls website with more information for riders
Metrolink, the commuter railroad that serves Southern California, has overhauled the look and content of its website to make it easier for the public to get information about routes, schedules and tickets.
The new features allow commuters to plan trips, find stations, learn about service changes and create personalized accounts, called “My Metrolink.” General news about the railroad also is available as well as a calculator for ticket prices.
“The vision was to improve the website’s user experience to make riding the train more accessible to everyone in Metrolink’s six‐county service area,” said Deborah Golian Castro, the chief executive officer of Creative Productions in Long Beach, which developed the site.

Metrolink, which has about 512 miles of track, carries more than 42,000 riders per weekday and about 20,000 weekend riders. It serves Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura counties.
