The Metrolink 91 / Perris Valley Line will be an extension to the current Metrolink 91 Line that starts in Los Angeles and goes through Fullerton and Corona on its way to Downtown Riverside. This new extension will have additional stations in Moreno Valley, Downtown Perris and South Perris. Service is expected to begin in February 2016. As part of this Dedication Ceremony, a ride on a Metrolink train was provided to VIPs, the Press, and the public for about 6 miles up the line and back on Friday, December 11, 2015.

This extension parallels the busy I-215 freeway. It will provide an alternative mode of transportation from residences to jobs along this growing corridor as well as stimulate further business expansion in this corridor. This new line will also provide a new easier access method for Riverside County residents to bypass the congested 91 Freeway to destinations in Orange County and Los Angeles.
