All but two Metrolink lines will be closed for service on Thanksgiving Day, officials announced today.

San Bernardino and Antelope Valley trains will operate on a regular Sunday schedule with seven round trips offered on the San Bernardino line and three on  the Antelope Valley line. Fares purchased on Thanksgiving Day will be 25% off regular weekday one-way and round-trip tickets.

The other five Metrolink lines will be closed. All trains will resume normal service Friday.

As part of Metrolink's holiday promotions, any round trip tickets bought on Thanksgiving are valid for free return travel on the San Bernardino and Antelope Valley lines on any day through Sunday. Also, up to three children 17 and younger can ride for free with a valid ticket on all lines during Thanksgiving weekend.
