LOS ANGELES, 2014-7-4 — /Travel PR News/ — This Saturday, Inland Empire travelers will now have additional options to reach destinations in Orange and Los Angeles counties, with Metrolink beginning new 91 Line weekend service. Four new trains will now run between Downtown Riverside and Los Angeles on both Saturdays and Sundays, with interim stops at the Riverside-La Sierra, North Main Corona, West Corona, Fullerton, Buena Park and Norwalk stations.
With this added service, San Bernardino Line weekend trains 351, 367, 364, and 376 will no longer start or end at the Riverside-Downtown Metrolink station. The first 91 Line weekend train leaves the Riverside-Downtown station at 7:40 a.m., while the final train returns at 8:55 p.m. For a complete schedule, visit metrolinktrains.com.
The added service will give Inland Empire residents more options to travel into Los Angeles and Orange counties.
As always, once riders reach Los Angeles Union Station, individuals can transfer to the Metro light-rail and many bus lines at no additional cost to access attractions such as Chinatown, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Pantages Theatre, Universal Studios, L.A. Live, Old Town Pasadena and others.
The 91 Line weekend service also offers riders access to attractions near Orange County stops such as Knott’s Berry Farm and Downtown Fullerton. The San Bernardino Line and 91 Line weekend services complement the existing Inland Empire-Orange County Line, which provides two round-trips between San Bernardino and Oceanside each Saturday and Sunday.
