Strategic Business Plan

Our Future is On Track Metrolink


The Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA) Strategic Business Plan was prepared during 2020 by SCRRA and consultant staff.  This Strategic Business Plan articulates the value of Metrolink to the Southern California mega region and charts a course towards a stronger future where our service, our role and our positive impact on our daily lives can grow and thrive. The Plan also lays the foundation for even more new approaches that will advance our transformation into a more independent, efficient and essential Metrolink for the future.

Metrolink's Strategic Business Plan outlines the agency's Mission, Vision and Commitments to ensure continuous improvement and growth.

The plan includes a framework for strategic actions for the agency for three distinct time periods:  2021-2025, 2026-2030, and 2031- 2050.

Customers are Our Business

We respect and value our customers, putting them at the heart of all we do, and work hard to attract and retain new customers by understanding their needs and finding new and innovative ways to delight them.

Connecting and Leveraging Partnerships

We will forge new and enhanced relationships with our public and private partners to integrate and coordinate connecting services, providing residents throughout Southern California with better, seamless, sustainable alternatives to driving.
