Rail Station Improvements Benefit Passengers

Rail Station Improvements Benefit Passengers

Thanks to recent improvements, the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Metrolink station now provides better access and a more comfortable experience for all passengers.

Working with the cities of Laguna Niguel and Mission Viejo and with the Southern California Regional Rail Authority, OCTA designed and constructed new ramps on each side of the station that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The ramps replace the station’s elevators and were added to the existing pedestrian undercrossing for more convenient, reliable access. The existing elevator shafts were redesigned to accommodate a public restroom and vending machines.

Three new passenger canopies along the station’s west platform provide shade and protection for waiting passengers.

Opened in 2002, the station averages 340 weekday boardings and is a half-mile from Interstate 5 and near major employers and attractions such as the Shops at Mission Viejo, Saddleback College and Mission Hospital.
