COAST CITIES — Drivers on the congested Interstate 5 will now see travel times for the Coaster train posted on Caltrans’ changeable message signs.
With support from NCTD, Caltrans is posting such information to encourage drivers to use public transit, particularly given summer congestion on San Diego freeways. The signs will be posted every Tuesday throughout July and August.
The four changeable message signs that will host these schedules are located in Oceanside near the exit to State Route 76, in Del Mar near the Via de la Valle exit, in the northern part of the city of San Diego near the Genesee Avenue exit, and south of the Interstate 8 exit in downtown San Diego.
After August, Caltrans and NCTD will analyze the impact of these messages to help determine if such messages will be displayed on a continuous basis.
