Upcoming Track Work Will Affect Pacific Surfliner Service

Pacific Surfliner service will be affected between Oceanside and San Diego due to scheduled track closures on the following dates: Feb. 24-26, Mar. 10-12, and Mar. 24-26, 2017. During the closures, construction crews will perform work on multiple projects that will improve rail travel along the corridor.

Friday (Evening Only): February 24, March 10, and March 24, 2017
Train 592 and 796 will only operate as far south as Oceanside, with connecting bus service provided between Oceanside and San Diego.

Saturday-Sunday: February 25-26, March 11-12, and March 25-26, 2017

  • All Pacific Surfliner trains will terminate at Oceanside, with connecting bus service to San Diego and intermediate stations. Northbound buses will not serve the Old Town San Diego station – passengers can instead take the trolley from Old Town to the Santa Fe Depot.
  • Train 1761 will originate in Oceanside but will not have a bus connection from points further south.
  • COASTER stations will NOT be served by the connecting bus service between Oceanside and San Diego.
  • Trains 562, 565, 579, and 592 will be cancelled entirely between Los Angeles and San Diego.
  • No impacts to Pacific Surfliner service north of Los Angeles.

Monday (Early-Morning Only): February 27, March 13 and March 27, 2017
Train 761 will originate Oceanside. Alternate transportation will not be provided between San Diego and Oceanside.

Why are the closures needed?
Tracks will be closed to allow for construction crews to perform work on multiple improvement projects. This includes adding another track and extending the platform at the Oceanside Transit Center, constructing a second rail track in San Diego County, improving railroad bridges over the San Diego River and Los Peñasquitos Lagoon, and more.
