OCSA has never had an incident with our "Metro riders". The students have learned to stick together. As the train gets closer to Santa Ana it fills with OCSA students. Currently, we have about 185 riders coming from all directions! We encourage all parents to familiarize your students with the stations and the routes they will be taking. We have taken many precautions to make the Metrolink a pleasant experience for your children. Click here for more information.
Holders of a monthly Metrolink pass (Orange and Ventura County corridors ONLY) are eligible for an Amtrak program called "Rails 2 Rails®". This program allows students holding a monthly pass to ride Metrolink or Amtrak trains. However, it is only available for Amtrak trains coming north from the Oceanside Station or south from the Oxnard Station. This program is not available for stations located in Riverside or San Bernardino County. Click here for more information.
As a reminder for all OCSA students, OCSA School-wide Behavior Expectations are in effect for students who are riding the train to and from school. A student removed from a train by Metrolink or Orange County Sheriff’s personnel will have their OCSA Metro Bus privileges revoked and will need to find an alternative method of traveling to and from OCSA.
Metrolink train conductors and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department actively enforce the Metrolink Passenger Code of Conduct, especially the following:
Riders who violate the Code of Conduct may be removed from the train and have rider privileges revoked by Metrolink.
OCSA Parents: Thank you for your assistance with communicating appropriate behaviors while on the train to your child. We want our students to be good ambassadors for the school, and not have their ability to travel to school be forfeited due to their behavior on public transportation.
