On Oct. 14, Metrolink will begin operating a new train schedule to improve frequency and connections between its commuter lines in California. 

The agency added more midday trains to its Orange County Line, which connects Orange County to Los Angeles, as well as added a westbound and eastbound train on its 91/Perris Valley Line between Perris and Los Angeles.

Additionally, Train 682 will depart L.A. Union Station 20 minutes earlier and arrive at the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Station at 7:50 a.m. to help commuters get to work by 8 a.m., Metrolink officials said in a press release. 

The new schedule also includes minor adjustments on the Riverside, San Bernardino and Inland Empire-Orange County lines to improve connections and reduce delays.  

Metrolink changes its schedule in October and April each year, reflecting customer feedback and opportunities to improve its service, agency officials said.
