Want to Get a Metrolink Refund? Here’s How You Can Do It

Metrolink is a regional passenger rail system that operates in Southern California. It has over 50 stations in the region and connects with the LA County Metro Rail system as well as the Metro Busway system. The rail system possesses hundreds of miles of rail and shares certain tracks with freight trains. 

Metrolink rails pass through Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties, as well as to Oceanside in San Diego County.

What Is the Metrolink Refund Policy?

The official Metrolink policy states that all tickets and metro passes are non-refundable. Despite this, it’s still possible to submit a ticket to Metrolink to request a refund. The railway company will determine whether or not it’s valid on a case-by-case basis. 


There are two scenarios that allow you to request a Metrolink ticket refund:

  • There has been a ticket machine malfunction that led to monetary loss
  • Circumstances beyond the customer’s control stopped them from using their ticket (this includes medical emergencies and stolen property)

You can request a refund for both paper and mobile ticket passes. Monthly passes can be refunded if the original is postmarked before the first day of the month printed on the pass. Purchases made with transit subsidies and Corporate Quick Cards aren’t refundable in any way.
