SoCal Students Can Ride Metrolink for Free

Southern California students with a valid student ID can ride Metrolink for free through next summer after the passenger rail service renewed its popular Student Adventure Pass program. The program has been granted a one-year extension.

The pass allows any student in K-12, trade schools or colleges to travel anywhere on Metrolink’s 545-mile service area free of charge.

The program was introduced in October 2023 and has proven to be a hit with students, many of whom have never taken the regional train service before.

Since its launch, the pass has been used more than 500,000 times, Metrolink says. More than 32,000 students from 557 schools have registered for the program, which can be done through the Metrolink app or at a ticket machine at a station.
