LOS ANGELES – Riders can now view estimated arrival times of Metrolink trains at stations using Metrolink’s new Train Tracker tool available at www.metrolinktrains.com.
This feature is part of Metrolink’s effort to improve customer service and provide timely updates. Using global positioning system (GPS) technology, train locations and arrival times are updated every 60 seconds.
Tickets can now also be purchased electronically from Metrolink’s website once customers download the mobile ticketing app. They can go directly to the Google Play or the App Store or the Metrolink website has the app link. Customers can still buy tickets from ticket vending machines at stations and other venues, but this is another convenient option that is becoming increasingly popular.
To use the Train Tracker feature, please visit www.metrolinktrains.com and click the “Train Status” tab.
