Metrolink is the nation's 3rd largest commuter rail system with unduplicated route miles and total route miles. See our station map» million train miles per year and million passenger miles per year.

Metrolink has a very low public subsidy of $ per passenger mile. 59% of Metrolink riders travel across county lines. 81% of weekday trips are work-related. Last year more than 37 million passenger journeys were made on the stop Metrolink network, making it the largest light rail system in the UK.

These results see Metrolink move closer to the 93% average for overall satisfaction across other, smaller tram networks (in Blackpool, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Sheffield and Midlands). Aim is to boost ridership among Millennials. In a bid to attract new train riders among Millennials – the next generation of commuters -- Metrolink is conducting an extensive online mobility survey of college and university students throughout Southern California.

Louis MetroLink | Retaining current light rail transit riders is often neglected relative to attracting new riders. The survey was undertaken between October 28 and December 13 last year.

Of the total 5, interviewees, 2, were surveyed in Manchester and Metrolink scored 83. Metrolink has grown tremendously during our 20 years in service with a dedicated staff of approximately full time employees and over contract staff.

The Metrolink fleet consists of 52 locomotives, active Bombardier BiLevel Coaches (Sentinel Fleet), and Hyundai Rotem bilevel cars (Guardian Fleet).

History. An order for an additional 20 Rotem cars was placed after Metrolink obtained a loan from the LACMTA, although this still leaves Metrolink 34 cars short of its goal to completely replace the entire Bombardier fleet.

The plan suffers from excessive. Overall, Metrolink has seen ridership on all trains increase 10%, particularly in key demographics. This has occurred even as fuel prices have fallen. There has also been a % increase of views on the Metrolink website. And Metrolink’s Facebook page now has more thanfans, the most of any train system in the country.
