'We are hopeful that a resolution will be reached prior to Thursday but as the parties have not yet reached an agreement, we are doing everything we can to notify our customers and provide alternate service options if the rail service is interrupted,' said Jason Jewell, interim Managing Director of the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency. 'We have closely coordinated with Amtrak and Metrolink to maximize service options for our customers including providing bus bridges where possible.'

    • All train services between Los Angeles (LAX) to Fullerton (FUL) will be canceled. There will be Thruway Bus connections in place to connect passengers between Los Angeles (LAX) and trains operating between Fullerton (FUL) and San Diego (SAN).

Unreserved Coach Ticket holders impacted by the service disruption can use their existing ticket for travel on a different date up to one year later. Business Class Ticket holders can adjust their travel date or request a full refund by calling 800-USA-RAIL or visiting an Amtrak ticket window.
