No Coastal rail Sept. 10 & 11

The San Diego coastal rail corridor will experience a major closure on the weekend of September 10 and 11. There will be no COASTER or Amtrak service this weekend due to infrastructure improvements.

During this closure NCTD will replace track, as well as install new culvert crossings, and shore a bridge as part of the Mid-Coast Corridor Project.

Amtrak will continue service to and from the Oceanside Transit Center, but will not operate south of the station. Metrolink will also continue service to and from the Oceanside Transit Center.

There will be no replacement bus service connecting COASTER stations. Alternatives for some COASTER passengers may include BREEZE Route 101 or MTS connections. Amtrak connecting bus service will require Amtrak reservations.

Coastal rail service will re-open for regularly scheduled service in time for the Monday morning commute. 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
