What is JuryLink?
JuryLink is a program whereby jurors, to get to court during jury duty service,
may ride Metrolink commuter trains free of charge. At the present time, the
program is only available to jurors serving the Burbank, Glendale, and the
Downtown Central locations.
JuryLink is a program offered to jurors assigned to the Burbank and Downtown Los
Angeles Courthouses. Jurors who wish to take a Metrolink train to one of those
courthouses will receive free 4-Trip Tickets in exchange for the mileage
reimbursement fee offered by the court. The current mileage reimbursement which
the juror will need to exchange for a 4-Trip Ticket is $.34 per mile (one-way),
not a significant reimbursement for those traveling long distances. In
exchange, you’ll enjoy all of Metrolink’s other benefits. These include a
comfortable, stress-free commute with free connecting transportation and
conveniently located train stations.
How Do I Sign Up for the JuryLink Program?
During juror orientation, information will be distributed to jurors interested
in using Metrolink. This includes a waiver sheet which authorizes your mileage
fees to be waived in exchange for 4-Trip Tickets on Metrolink. The value of the
4-Trip Ticket exceeds the value of your reimbursement.
To validate your ticket, find the metal validating machine on the train platform
and insert your ticket before you board the train each time. The machine will
stamp the date and time on your ticket. You will be issued another ticket by
Superior Court Juror Services staff if you use up your 4-Trip Ticket and still
are on jury duty. You must turn in your “validated” ticket in order to receive
your new ticket.
How Do I Get from Union Station to the Courthouse?
When your train arrives at Union Station, proceed down into the passenger
tunnel below the platform. Look for signs that direct you to the Metro Red Line
entrance. Go downstairs to the Red Line platform and wait for the next subway.
Red Line trains come along every five minutes during the morning and evening
Once on the Red Line, have your Metrolink ticket available to show MTA Transit
Police if requested. Your Metrolink ticket allows you to ride the Red Line to
and from your Metrolink train.
Get off the Red Line at “Civic Center,” the first stop after Union Station. If
you are assigned to the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center, take
the Temple Street exit from the Red Line station. The escalator or stairs will
take you to the street level (Hill Street). Cross the “Court of Flags” to
Broadway. Cross Broadway and turn left to the Justice Center building at the
corner of Broadway and Temple (210 W. Temple Street).
If you are assigned to the Stanley Mosk Courthouse, take the Temple Street exit
from the Red Line station. Take the escalator or stairs to the street level.
Turn left and walk to 1st Street. Cross Hill Street and proceed to the
courthouse at 1st and Hill (111 N. Hill Street).
Jurors with disabilities will find an elevator at the Temple Street exit. Exit
the elevator at the street level and follow the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal
Justice Center or Stanley Mosk Courthouse directions.
How Do I Get from the Burbank Station to your
The Burbank MetroLink Station is located approximately 4 blocks from the
Burbank Courthouse. From the Burbank Metrolink Station, take the elevator to
the street level. Travel East on Olive Avenue (crossing the bridge), pass 1st
Street to your destination at 300 E. Olive Avenue.

How Do I Validate my 4-Trip Ticket?
The ticket you will receive is good for four one-way rides or two roundtrips.
This ticket must be “validated” for each ride before you board your Metrolink
train. A metal validator, located at each station, will stamp the date and time
on your ticket. You cannot validate tickets on the train. Since the conductor
may inspect tickets on the train, you may be subject to a citation and fine if
you forget to validate your ticket.
