Metrolink's SCORE Program


Metrolink's Southern California Optimized Rail Expansion (SCORE) is a $10 billion capital improvement program — grade crossing, station and signal improvements as well as track additions and work — that accelerates progress towards Metrolink's zero-emissions future. Improvements that allow some cities to apply for quiet zones. Southern California is growing, we must do more to serve Southern California's growing population, to meet the state's ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gases and improve access to affordable housing and other opportunities.

The SCORE program is an ambitious capital program that will upgrade Metrolink's system in time for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

SCORE projects will be completed starting in 2023, with the program complete by 2028.

With SCORE the region gets more:

  • MORE safety improvements
  • MORE peak and off-peak rail service
  • MORE access to job centers and affordable housing
  • MORE seamless connections to other rail providers
  • MORE jobs and economic development
  • And healthier air for all


The Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) was commissioned to produce a study (pdf) assessing the impact of the construction investment of the SCORE Program. The benefits from SCORE will make the region increasingly attractive for the millions projected to arrive in SoCal in 2028 and create regional prosperity in the decades to come.
