(Victor Valley)– The Metrolink Board of Directors voted to offer free train rides in support of Earth Day on Monday, April 22, 2019 to encourage more people to leave their cars at home and minimize their environmental footprint by producing cleaner air and less traffic through public transportation.
On Earth Day, Metrolink is preparing for higher ridership by increasing customer service and call center support, adding brand ambassadors at high traffic stations and platforms and providing increased social media support for rider engagement.
