CalSTA Blog: Unveiling Metrolink’s Tier 4 Locomotives

Be in the know about California's transportation policies
Metrolink Tier 4 (2)
On July 18th, Metrolink unveiled its new Tier 4 locomotive at Los Angeles’ Union Station. The state-of-the-art locomotives will reduce particulate matter and nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 85 percent.  In addition to the environmental benefits, the new Tier 4 locomotives will also move passengers more quickly and reliably.
Metrolink is the first commuter rail agency nationwide to purchase the Tier 4 locomotives.  More than $100 million in funding for the project, which includes nine new locomotives, was provided by various state partners including CalSTA – through the Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP) and the California High-Speed Rail Authority through Rail Connectivity funding.
