The Metrolink El Monte Station is located on the Metrolink San Bernardino Line, the busiest line on the Metrolink system. The Metrolink El Monte Train Station is located approximately three-quarters of a mile from the Metro El Monte Bus Transit Center. The goal of the study is to identify opportunities to improve connectivity between the Metrolink Train Station and the Metro Bus Station.
In March 2016, the Metro Board of Directors unanimously approved a motion to examine the feasibility of relocating three existing Metrolink stations and creating a new Metrolink station at the base of Rio Hondo College. The three existing stations under study are the Northridge, El Monte and Montebello/Commerce Stations.
