• July 20, 2019 Schedule Change

    A new Pacific Surfliner timetable will be effective Saturday, July 20, 2019. Some trains will have different schedules on Saturdays and Sundays during the summer Del Mar Racing Season (July 20 through September 2, 2019). Download the timetable.

    Minor Adjustments to Weekend Schedules

    Trains 768, 796, 583, and 591 will have a separate weekday and weekend schedules, and Train 1572 will operate on a modified weekend schedule, through Labor Day. 

    Please Note: Trains are expected to be busy between Los Angeles and San Diego from July 17 to July 21 due to opening weekend at the Del Mar Racetrack and Comic-Con International San Diego. During this time, the Rail 2 Rail Program with Metrolink and NCTD will be suspended – an Amtrak ticket will be required to ride Pacific Surfliner trains. Trains may continue to be busy on weekends through Labor Day (September 2) due to passengers headed to and from the racetrack.
