COAST CITIES — Football fans can avoid the hassle of traffic and parking fees by riding the Coaster train Dec. 27. The North County Transit District, Metropolitan Transit System and Amtrak will team together to provide round-trip transportation to the Holiday Bowl.
Qualcomm-bound passengers may ride the southbound COASTER train 688, arriving at Old Town Transit Center at 2:45 p.m. and take the MTS Trolley Green Line directly to the stadium.
After the game, passengers can take the Trolley Green Line back to Old Town Transit Center and board the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner train 595, heading north. (Amtrak will hold the train to accomodate the game’s conclusion) This Amtrak train will make all Coaster station stops and Coaster passengers are allowed on the train with a valid Coaster ticket.
