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, 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.
