Metrolink, our regional rail service partner, is spreading the spirit of the season with its first Holiday Express Train series since the pandemic. The beloved holiday tradition is back and better than ever, with eight magical railway rides filled with holiday cheer and a lineup of unforgettable experiences.
Upon stepping into the train cars, riders can admire the cheery decorations and listen to singing carolers. Mr. and Mrs. Claus will even be making an appearance alongside a cast of favorite holiday characters hosting all kinds of activities throughout the ride.
Be sure to plan for some extra time at the host train stations to enjoy the pre-event entertainment before the ride — including crafting tables and musical performances. Give back to the community by bringing an unwrapped toy for the County of Los Angeles Fire Department’s Spark of Love Toy Drive, which will be held on-site.
Tickets for the Metrolink Holiday Express Train are priced at $25 per person and must be purchased online in advance. Children younger than two can ride for free while safely seated on a parent’s lap. Each train car will have assigned seating, and riders can select their preferred seats during the ticket purchasing process. Metrolink recommends that riders arrive at least 45 minutes prior to their ticket’s scheduled departure time to ensure a smooth and easy boarding process.
