Metrolink is truly a united effort, made possible by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), the Orange County Transportation Authority, the Riverside County Transportation Commission, San Bernardino Associated Governments and the Ventura County Transportation Commission. In 1991, the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA), a Joint Powers Authority (JPA), consisting of the five county transportation planning agencies listed above, was formed to develop a regional transit service to reduce the congestion on highways and improve mobility throughout the Southern California region. In October 1992, Metrolink was born.

Today Metrolink continues to provide the people of Southern California a safe, reliable and environmentally friendly commute option. What began with three lines of service, 12 stations and a little over 5,000 daily passengers has grown to seven lines, 55 stations and 40,000 passengers per day.
