Oceanside, CA–In order to facilitate regular maintenance and infrastructure improvements along the coastal rail corridor, there will be no Coaster service in San Diego County Saturday and Sunday, officials said.
No replacement bus service connecting Coaster stations will be available. Alternatives for some Coaster passengers may include Breeze Route 101 or MTS connections.
After this weekend’s closure, coastal rail service will re-open for regularly scheduled service in time for the Monday morning commute. Passengers should note that trains may be delayed up to fifteen minutes on Monday.
While no passenger rail service will be available during this weekend closure, other vehicles and equipment will operate along the railroad right-of-way and on the rail at non-specified times. Residents along the corridor should remain alert at legal crossings, and not trespass on the railroad right-of-way.
