Metrolink is a regional transportation effort made possible by the Los Angeles Count Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), the Orange County Transportation Authority, the Riverside County Transportation Commission, San Bernardino Associated Governments and Ventura County Transportation Commission.
In 1991, the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCCRA), (consisting of the agencies listed above) was formed to develop a regional transit service to reduce the congestion on highways and improve mobility throughout Southern California. In October 1992, Metrolink was born.
After 15 years of operation, Metrolink continues to provide the people of Southern California a safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly commute option. The City of Corona is served by two Metrolink stations. North Main Street and West Corona are two of the stations that receive high daily boarding counts for the work commute. Ridership at the North Main station is the highest of the 14 stations on the line. The increase in ridership has prompted the Riverside County Transportation Commission to build a multi-story parking structure that provides safe parking for those using Metrolink.
