The Inland Empire–Orange County (IEOC) Line is a commuter rail line run by Metrolink in Southern California. It runs from San Bernardino through Orange County to Oceanside in northern San Diego County.

The IEOC Line, Metrolink's sixth line to be introduced, opened in October 1995.[2] With the exception of the Anaheim Canyon station, the line shares all of its stations with the 91 Line, the Orange County Line, the Riverside Line, and the San Bernardino Line. As of July 2008, 8 trains in each direction serve the stations between Anaheim Canyon and Riverside on weekdays.[3]

In July 2006, the Orange County Transportation Authority created weekend service on the IEOC and Orange County Lines. The IEOC Line schedule currently features 3 Saturday trains and 2 Sunday trains.[4] However, in 2010, the Metrolink board voted to reduce service on the line.[5]
