Coaster and Surfliner service canceled Weekend closures for trains

OCEANSIDE — On the weekend of May 20 and May 21, Coaster service will be limited, and all Amtrak Pacific Surfliner service in San Diego will be cancelled.

The Coaster will operate on its normal schedule between Oceanside and Solana Beach, but will not service stations further south due to construction. No Amtrak Rail-2-Rail trains will be available on these dates. Passengers in North County will be able to access two major events that weekend: Fiesta del Sol in Solana Beach and Armed Forces Day Operation Appreciation in Oceanside.

Rail service will reopen for regularly scheduled service in time for the Monday morning commute. Passengers should note that trains on the coastal corridor may be delayed up to 15 minutes on Monday.

While no passenger rail service will be available south of Solana Beach during this closure, other vehicles and equipment will operate along the railroad right-of-way and on the rail at non-specified times. Residents along the corridor should remain alert at legal crossings, and not trespass on the railroad right-of-way.

Customers are urged to plan ahead and make alternative travel arrangements. For trip planning assistance customers can contact NCTD Customer Service at (760) 966-6500, or visit To learn more about additional planned closures, visit:
