    Free Metrolink rides this Saturday


    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Free Metrolink rides this Saturday

    On my few trips on the Metrolink I found it to be a nice, quiet ride. Too bad it was so expensive. $7.75 round-trip from Union Station to DOwntown Burbank is a bit much.

    Wow, that's more than the gas! (And the added inconvenience of public transportation to boot!)

    Sounds interesting. I went to their web site to try and find a schedule of times they are running but they say nothing about this promotion there. The beginning time of 8:15 leaving the Santa Fe Station at Orange does not agree with their normal Saturday schedule.

    If you actually click on the link and read, it says riders "who board and depart from the Santa Fe Depot in Orange."

    It's a good idea in theory, but I'm really interested to see if this will actually do anything to increase ridership on normal full fares from (or to) that station.

    I agree. I don't think the times as listed on their weekend schedule are very practical.

    I plan to call them this afternoon regarding this "special".
