City of Santa Clarita | Vista Canyon Multi-Modal Center Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
The city of Santa Clarita welcomed its fourth Metrolink station in a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, Oct. 20. The new station officially opened to the public on Monday, Oct. 23. This is Metrolink’s 67th station available for travelers and the fourth station in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Los Angeles County Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Santa Clarita City Council and staff, local dignitaries, Metrolink officials, transportation officials, and the public attended the ceremony. Amenities include an infill Metrolink train station, bus transfer facility, parking lot and 18 bicycle lockers encouraging travelers to use public transportation.
Ricky Leo, president of the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California, also spoke about the historical significance of this train station — which is near the site of the “wedding of the rails” in 1976, where the Southern Pacific and Central Pacific railroad tracks came together. This feat wouldn’t have been achieved without the Chinese rail workers who built the transcontinental railway.
The center is located in the Vista Canyon community adjacent to the Antelop Valley freeway, State Route 14, in Santa Clarita.
