    Upcoming Improvements to the Tracks Used by the Pacific Surfliner®

    The LOSSAN rail corridor stretches 351 miles from San Diego to San Luis Obispo, with the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, freight, commuter and long-distance trains sharing the tracks. Ongoing construction projects keep the infrastructure in top condition and contribute to overall improvements in rail travel along the corridor.

    Larger projects require the tracks to be closed so crews can perform necessary work, which temporarily affects train service. We understand that this may be an inconvenience to riders, and would like to thank you for your patience.

    Learn more about upcoming construction projects and the related service disruptions below.
