The global fight against the novel coronavirus continues, and we are working closely with our partners to provide safe transportation for those who need to travel.
Effective March 19, 2020, the state of California instituted an executive order for residents to stay at home except for essential needs. Under this order, the Pacific Surfliner is considered an “essential service” and will continue to operate as long as it is safe and sensible to do so.
That said, we are temporarily moving to a reduced schedule for the Pacific Surfliner based on current ridership needs. We will continue to monitor the situation and may make further adjustments as required. Please travel only if absolutely necessary and observe at least six feet of distance from others.
Visit our Travel Advisory page for information about other adjustments to the Pacific Surfliner service, such as the reduction or suspension of food and beverage sales in the onboard Market Café, and the reduction of hours at some staffed stations. View schedule details below.
Effective Monday, June 1, 2020
Pacific Surfliner trains continue to operate on a reduced schedule. However, the following modifications are being made effective June 1, 2020* in an effort to restore some service on the north-end of the corridor.
A total of three trains in each direction will operate north of Los Angeles. Two will end in Santa Barbara/Goleta and one will extend up to San Luis Obispo. Thruway bus service will provide supplemental departure options, connecting to trains in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles.
- Train 774* will originate in San Luis Obispo instead of Los Angeles.
- Thruway bus connections are being retimed to improve spacing of departure options and to shorten layover times. Two bus trips will operate between San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, and one bus trip will operate between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles.
- Trains 562, 566/1566, 572/1572, 578, 782, 590/1590, and 792 remain cancelled
- Train 777 will end in San Luis Obispo instead of Goleta.
- Train 785 will end in Goleta instead of Los Angeles.
