Founded in 1991 as the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA), Metrolink began operations in 1992 under the Metrolink moniker. The system was established to provide a regional commuter rail service, aiming to reduce traffic congestion and improve mobility across Southern California. Over the years, it has undergone expansions and upgrades to enhance service efficiency and safety. The system is operated by Amtrak under contract with the SCRRA, and it has grown to become an integral part of the region's public transportation network.
