Anaheim Canyon Metrolink Station Benefits Passengers, Improves Efficiency

The new and improved Anaheim Canyon Metrolink station opened in late January to facilitate a more comfortable rail experience for passengers traveling through north Orange County. For more efficient travel and scheduling, the station features a new second track of approximately 3,400 feet, allowing more than one train at a time to stop at or pass through the station.

The Anaheim Canyon Station, located just north of SR-91 near La Palma and Tustin avenues, is an important stop along the Inland Empire-Orange County line, with more than 36 trains traveling through the area daily.

“Improving the passenger experience is vital to encouraging more people to get on and continue riding the train in Orange County,” said OCTA Chairman Gene Hernandez, also the Mayor of Yorba Linda. “The Anaheim Canyon Station is an important link in our rail network and I think it’s clear these improvements will enhance the traveling experience for everyone who uses the station.” 

The $34.2 million project was funded by OC Go, also known as Measure M, Orange County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements.
