Kids Ride Metrolink Free on Weekends

Weekends are a great time to explore Southern California when kids 17 and under ride free and adults travel for only $10. And that’s for unlimited travel all day either Saturday or Sunday.

Families can sit comfortably and socially distanced on spacious, clean and disinfected double-decker trains and enjoy mountain, ocean and city views. On-board amenities include face-to-face table seating, restrooms, and two hand sanitizer stations on each train car. Plus, every train has a bike car to carry bikes, surfboards or picnic baskets.

Check the system map to see where Metrolink travels, then choose a destination to explore. Plan your schedule on the website or use the Metrolink Mobile App.

On the day of your weekend trip, purchase a $10 Weekend Day Pass for each adult. It’s contactless on the Metrolink Mobile App or you can use the new ticket machines at the stations. With every $10 Weekend Day Pass you buy, up to three kids, 17 years old and under, ride free – anywhere Metrolink travels.

No ticket is needed for the children; they simply board with their parents. Face masks are required on Metrolink platforms and trains, except for children two years old and under.
