Moreno Valley / March Field Station Improvements

0722 MV March Field Map v2

Status: Pre-Construction

Location: Moreno Valley/March Field Station, Riverside

Type of Project: Station Improvement

Location: Moreno Valley/March Field Station, Riverside

Construction: Began in October 2022 and to be completed in spring 2024

Investment: $33 million (construction)


The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), in partnership with the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (Metrolink), is upgrading the Moreno Valley/March Field Station in Riverside. This station serves Metrolink’s 91/Perris Valley Line and is the midpoint between the Perris-Downtown Station and the Riverside-Downtown Station. RCTC is the lead agency for this project.

Project benefits and features include:

  • Capacity: Adding a second train platform and lengthening the existing train platform to accommodate the length of Metrolink’s standard six-car trains. This will allow for service improvements on the 91/Perris Valley Line — both peak service and reverse commute service to and from adjacent counties — as well as improved service reliability within Riverside County. The project also will upgrade 2.5 miles of track that are part of a future nine-mile double-track corridor south of the station.
  • Traffic Flow: Reducing traffic congestion on Interstate 215 by providing efficient and reliable public transit options for Riverside County residents who have some of the longest commutes in southern California.
  • Clean Air: Reducing auto emissions by encouraging more residents to commute by train.

Construction began in October 2022 and is scheduled to be completed by spring 2024. Project funding is provided by a combination of sources, including a $32 million Federal Transit Administration grant.

Work is expected to start fall 2022 and be completed by approximately spring 2024. Schedules may change, due to weather, material availability, and staffing.
