Attention Metrolink Riders

Your 1-Way/Roundtrip, Weekend Pass, 7-Day Pass and Monthly Metrolink passes enable you to board Metro Rail or Metro buses to complete your commute. Metrolink tickets with a TAP and EZ transit pass logo are accepted as a flash pass and require visual inspection on board buses. Metrolink passes that have an EZ transit pass logo are eligible to ride as base fare on all Metro Bus, Metro Rapid Lines and Metro Rail routes. Customers with Metrolink tickets must have a separate TAP card with stored value to pay for Express or Silver Line upcharges: Full Fare $0.75 or Senior/Disabled $0.60.

Metro and Metrolink are working together to ensure Metrolink riders have access to Metro Rail once station turnstiles are latched. Be sure to check back for more updates.
