• October 8, 2018 Schedule Change

    A coordinated schedule change that will impact Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, Metrolink and COASTER trains is effective as of Monday, October 8, 2018. These adjustments are intended to improve reliability and provide enhanced coordination with other trains operating on the Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo rail corridor. Download the new timetable and see the summary of changes below.

    Minor Adjustments to Departure/Arrival Times

    Most Pacific Surfliner trains experienced minor schedule changes to improve reliability, departing up to 10 minutes earlier or later. Check the updated timetable to see if departure times for the trains you ride changed.

    Changes to Weekday/Weekend Schedules

    Several Pacific Surfliner trains that previously had the same schedule seven days a week (including Trains 564, 565, 769, 572, 573, 579 and 584) now operate on different schedules on weekends. As a result, some train numbers have changed. In addition, Train 769 has been renumbered to 569 and terminates at Los Angeles, while Train 567 has been renumbered to 767/1767 and terminates in Goleta.

    Rail 2 Rail Changes

    Pacific Surfliner trains no longer stop at Carlsbad Village or Sorrento Valley stations under a revised Rail 2 Rail program with COASTER. COASTER passengers with a valid Monthly/30-Day Pass or a RegionPlus Day Pass may ride any Pacific Surfliner train within the trip limits printed on their COASTER pass. Single ride and round-trip COASTER tickets are no longer valid on Pacific Surfliner trains. Blackout dates apply to the Rail 2 Rail Program, including November 21-25, 2018.
