OVERVIEW

The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) owns and operates the Metrolink stations in Riverside County. Many improvements are being made to the stations to ensure riders have a positive experience.

See below for more information about each of the projects:

This project will address the needs of Riverside County commuters. Benefits and features include:

  • Capacity: Adding a second train platform and lengthening the existing train platform to accommodate the length of Metrolink’s standard eight-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 within Riverside County. The project also will upgrade 2.7 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 more public transit options for Riverside County residents, including those in southwestern Riverside County, who have some of the longest commutes in southern California.
  • Clean Air: Reducing auto emissions by offering more options for train service, which encourages more commuters to travel by train

Environmental reviews are under way. Subject to environmental approvals and funding, construction could begin in 2021 and be complete in early 2022.

This project will expand the Metrolink train layover facility at the Riverside-Downtown Station. The project will allow more trains to be housed at the station at the end of each night shift, which will allow for more efficient service.

Work began in March 2020 and is expected to last through late 2020.

This project proposes building an additional passenger loading platform and tracks to improve Metrolink service and extending the existing pedestrian bridge for added elevator and stair access.

This project is modernizing elevators at the Corona-North Main and Riverside-Downtown Stations by upgrading parts and installing new technology. The upgrades will allow the elevators to run more smoothly and with less down-time or needed repairs.

Upgrades to the Corona-North Main Station elevators were completed in April 2020. Upgrades to the Riverside-Downtown Station elevators are expected to be completed in June 2020.
