Train service through Orange County is resuming
Return to convenient commuting. Train service through San Clemente, Orange County, resumes July 17.
According to the Southern California Metrolinke commuter rail system website, a temporary barrier wall that protects tracks and trains from debris from the slope can safely restore Metrolink and Amtrak Pacific Surfliner train service through Orange County.
The trains, which only run between San Diego and Los Angeles, return just in time for Comic-Con, the finale of X Games California and the start of the Del Mar racing season.
Trains traveling to and from San Diego will no longer require a bus transfer between Irvine and Oceanside. There will once again be 10 daily round trips between Los Angeles and San Diego.
As a reminder, ground shifting over the Orange County Line tracks in San Clemente on June 5 led to their closure. The Orange County Transportation Authority voted June 12 to declare an emergency. The goal is to expedite construction of a 250-foot-long, 12-foot-high barrier wall.
It was built to protect the tracks from debris. And will now allow Metrolink and Amtrak Pacific Surfliner trains to run through the area again.
This is big news for Orange County passengers who use the railroad. After all, they will once again be able to travel comfortably and safely. The schedule can be viewed on the website Pacific Surfliner.
