Effective Tuesday, May 15, 2012 Metrolink will no longer sell 10-trip tickets. Existing 10-trip Metrolink tickets will be honored until June 28, 2012 at which point they will expire. Additionally, the City of Burbank is working on an agreement with Amtrak for Amtrak’s 10-trip tickets that currently valid on Metrolink trains and will provide additional information on that once that agreement is final.

Metrolink has been alerting passengers for several weeks via conductor announcements, notices on trains and at stations, and through social media so that passengers can make a smooth transition to other ticket options. Alternate ticket options include Monthly Passes, 7-Day Passes and One-Way and Round-Trip tickets. For more information on Metrolink ticket types and fares, please visit www.metrolinktrains.com.

On April 27, the Metrolink Board of Directors directed staff to initiate a public outreach process for a potential system-wide fare increase to help close an existing $13 million funding gap for Fiscal Year 12-13 budget and Metrolink’s proposed Title VI Service Delivery Policy. The public will be asked to give feedback regarding an average system-wide fare increase between 5 and 9 percent to go into effect on or after July 1, 2012.
