    Timetable: Metrolink Express

    Express service began Monday between  downtown Los Angeles and the Antelope and Santa Clarita valleys and San  Bernardino. The express lines could save commuters as much  as 32 minutes in travel time by eliminating stops along the routes, according to Metrolink.

    The express trains will have up to six cars.

    The morning express train was scheduled to leave Palmdale at 5:32 a.m., stop in Santa Clarita and Burbank, and arrive at Union Station at 7 a.m. The  afternoon train will leave Union Station at 5:25 p.m., stop at Burbank at 5:38  p.m., Santa Clarita at 6:06 p.m. and arrive in Palmdale at 6:53 p.m.

    Metrolink also is adding 10 trains on the Antelope Valley, San  Bernardino and Ventura County lines, along with seasonal trains that will carry  passengers from the Inland Empire to San Clemente Beach.
