About Irvine Spectrum Trains 

The Irvine Train Station is located right in the heart of the Irvine Spectrum Area featuring Metrolink and Amtrak service. Commuters can ride the train to work from/to many Southern California destinations. By riding the train, you’ll save overall commute time as trains are not subject to automobile traffic. The time you actually spend on the train can be spent reading, planning your day or getting some additional sleep. You decide. As for cost, when you compare the cost of the train to the actual cost of driving (gas, insurance, maintenance, depreciation), you’ll save money too.

If you’re still not sure, Spectrumotion will give you a Free 7-Day Metrolink Pass so you can try it out. And don’t forget about our Emergency Ride Home Program. You won’t have a car at work but Spectruomotion will never leave you stranded in an emergency.
