Moorpark is a passenger rail station in the city of Moorpark, California. Service commenced in 1983 as an infill station on the short-lived CalTrain line.[2]

It is served by both Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner from San Luis Obispo to San Diego and Metrolink's Ventura County Line from Los Angeles Union Station to East Ventura. Five Pacific Surfliner trains serve the station daily and 16 Metrolink trains serve the station each weekday. Moorpark served as the Ventura County Line's terminal until service was extended to Oxnard after the Northridge earthquake in 1994, and now acts as the western terminus of the Ventura County Line except during peak hours in the peak direction of travel. Metrolink stores trains in a small yard a short distance west of the station.[3]

Of the 73 California stations served by Amtrak, Moorpark was the 53rd-busiest in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 35 passengers daily.[4]
