Metrolink to implement San Bernardino Line discount
LOS ANGELES - (INT) - Commuters using Metrolink’s San Bernardino Line, the network’s busiest, are in for a better ride on their wallet.
The Metrolink Board of Directors has approved a 25 percent discount starting July 1 on all existing fares on the San Bernardino Line.
“Improving Metrolink ridership and service is critical to our goals of reducing congestion, improving our air quality, and enhancing mobility in the basin,” said Metro Director and LA County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis. “This fare discount program is designed to encourage new people to use Metrolink while rewarding those who are loyal to cross-county transit. I am excited for this new money-saving program and the benefit it will have on our communities.”
This discount will result in major savings for current and future Metrolink riders. A regular monthly pass from Covina to Los Angeles costs $217. With the 25% discount, the same monthly pass would cost $161.00, while students and senior citizens will pay only $120.75 under the fare discount program.
The discount is being implemented for an initial period of six months and does not apply to the $10 weekend day pass.
