Weekend Service Disruptions Expected for Amtrak, NCTD
Disruptions expected for Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Amtrak and North County Transit District train service will be disrupted Friday night and into the weekend due to construction.
The last southbound Amtrak Pacific Surfliner train tonight will make its final stop in Oceanside. Passengers will be bused to stations in Solana Beach, Old Town and San Diego, according to Amtrak.
On Saturday and Sunday, four trains will be canceled. Passengers on those trains should contact Amtrak and consider taking the Metrolink train north from Oceanside.
The Surfliner trains still scheduled to run will start and end at Oceanside, with bus service continuing to Solana Beach, Old Town and San Diego, according to Amtrak.
The NCTD's Coaster trains will not run all weekend, but the agency will offer bus service between Oceanside, Encinitas and downtown San Diego.
Crews have been working to improve the rail lines for a couple of months.
