Buses to supplement Metrolink service on some Antelope Valley line weekend trains through Feb. 19

Here’s the news release from Metrolink:

Los Angeles – Due to scheduled track maintenance over four consecutive weekends starting Jan. 27, Metrolink will supplement train service with buses between Newhall and Lancaster for the following trains:

Northbound Antelope Valley Train 223 on Jan. 27, Feb. 3, Feb. 10 and Feb. 17. Southbound Antelope Valley Train 260 and Northbound Antelope Valley Train 271 on Jan. 28, Feb. 4, Feb. 11 and Feb. 18.

Southbound Antelope Valley Train 260 on Jan. 29, Feb. 5, Feb. 12 and Feb. 19.

Passengers on the northbound trains 223 and 271 will travel by train from Los Angeles Union Station to the Newhall station, then continue to all station stops on a bus. Passengers may arrive up to half an hour late to their destinations, depending on traffic levels.

For train 260, the bus will depart 30 minutes earlier than the regular train schedule from the Lancaster, Palmdale, Vincent Grade/Acton, Via Princessa and Santa Clarita stations to allow passengers to arrive at Newhall for the train’s regularly-scheduled departure time. The Metrolink train will continue south, making all stops into Los Angeles Union Station.

Metrolink plans service disruptions of this nature during non-peak travel times to minimize the impact to its passengers. For more information on Metrolink service and schedules, please visit www.metrolinktrains.com.
