The Southern California Regional Rail Authority (Metrolink) has renewed its contract with Amtrak for regional/commuter rail operations services, beginning Jan. 1, 2021 and expiring June 30, 2025. Amtrak will also provide and manage engineers and conductors.
“We are honored to continue serving Metrolink and the communities and residents of Southern California,” said Amtrak President Stephen Gardner, who was promoted to his leadership post Nov. 30. “We look forward to building upon our many years of partnership and helping the agency achieve its bold vision of growth and improvement.”
