We’ve partnered with San Luis Obispo Car Free to encourage visitors to travel by train instead of driving. Register to save 20% on Pacific Surfliner trips to San Luis Obispo County, plus get discounts on nearby hotels and attractions.

Why travel by train?

Taking the train is more energy efficient than traveling by car, and helps reduce your carbon footprint. Plus, instead of navigating freeways and staring at the road ahead, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy stunning scenery that you won’t experience by car. Stay connected with onboard Wi-Fi and visit the Café car featuring fresh food, cocktails, wine and craft beer, before arriving in the heart of San Luis Obispo. With so many great attractions, shops, and restaurants nearby, it’s possible to have an entirely car-free visit to San Luis Obispo.
