Metrolink today will begin offering discounted tickets on its 91/Perris Valley Line in an effort to boost ridership on the railroad's newest extension.

The ticket cost will be reduced 25 percent, Metrolink officials said in a press release. The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) is funding the initiative, which applies to all tickets that list the four stations on the Perris Valley extension as their origin or destination.

"Since the Perris Valley Line extension opened in June, we’ve seen ridership grow. We look forward to seeing this trend continue," said Metrolink Board Member Karen Spiegel.

Riders can purchase the reduced-price tickets on the Metrolink app, at station ticket vending machines or at ticket windows at Los Angeles Union Station through June 7, 2017.
