Oceanside, CA – The North County Transit District (NCTD) will offer a holiday service schedule on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25. Passengers should be aware that BREEZE, FLEX, LIFT, and SPRINTER will operate on a Saturday service schedule, and COASTER service will be suspended.
NCTD typically offers an altered schedule on national holidays to account for fewer early morning commuter trips and extended evening service. Saturday night SPRINTER service runs as late as 11:33 p.m. for the Eastbound trip from Oceanside to Escondido offering multiple options for those celebrating the Memorial Day holiday.
COASTER weekend service is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This suspension will also be in effect for the Memorial Day Monday holiday and service will not run between Oceanside and San Diego.
NCTD continues to provide essential transportation services while also taking all possible steps to ensure the health and safety of vehicle operators and the public. Passengers are encouraged to remember the following requirements while riding with NCTD:
- All passengers are required to wear face coverings while using the transit system. Face coverings must be worn at all times when riding transit and on transit property and must cover the rider’s nose and mouth. These may include masks (purchased or homemade), bandanas, scarves, and neck gaiters. Complimentary face masks may be found on NCTD buses and trains, while supplies last.
- Rear door boarding is now in effect for all BREEZE buses. Riders must enter and exit through the rear door of the bus. Senior and ADA passengers are allowed to enter and exit through the front door as normal.
- Social distancing measures are in place to keep passengers at least six feet from the bus operator.
- Operators are now allowed to do a visual inspection of fares to keep from touching cash or other personal items.
