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 2016, eight trains in each direction serve the stations from Riverside to Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo on weekdays.[3] The remainder of the trains servicing the IEOC Line cover more to all of the stations, except San Clemente Pier, which is only serviced on the weekends.[3] The San Clemente Pier station is two miles south of the San Clemente station, making San Clemente Pier still easily accessibly on weekdays through the use of Uber or Lyft. It should also be noted that this line is the only Metrolink line which doesn't terminate at Union Station.

In July 2006, the Orange County Transportation Authority created weekend service on the IEOC and Orange County Lines. As of August 2016, the IEOC Line schedule has two trains on Saturday and two on Sunday, each servicing every station, including San Clemente Pier.[3]

Metrolink's Downtown San Bernardino extension will add the San Bernardino Transit Center as the new northeastern terminus of the line. The extension is under construction as of April 2017.[4]
