Proposed Sorrento Valley COASTER Connection Routes

Proposed Sorrento Valley COASTER Connection Routes
blue box

The North County Transit District (NCTD) is seeking feedback on the proposed Sorrento Valley COASTER Connection (SVCC) routes. NCTD will begin running the SVCC service on June 10, 2024.

NCTD staff have used rider feedback from Fall 2023 and operational factors to provide access to many of the existing destinations currently served by the MTS SVCC routes. Additionally, the proposed routing will provide new bus connections to/from destinations surrounding the Sorrento Valley COASTER station.

The proposed NCTD service will connect with the COASTER trips that MTS currently serves. NCTD is also assessing the feasibility of connecting to additional COASTER midday trips, including COASTER train numbers 630, 633, and 636, to accommodate customer requests.

The SVCC would be considered FLEX service, which is included in COASTER regional and premium regional daily and monthly passes.

Disponible en Español

The existing SVCC routes will be operated by San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) until June 7, 2024. Starting June 10, NCTD is proposing the following replacement service:

  • MTS 972 (Sorrento Mesa) will operate on streamlined routing and add service along Vista Sorrento Parkway as NCTD 472
  • MTS 973 (Carroll Canyon) will have slight adjustments to include Morehouse Dr as NCTD 473
  • MTS 974 (UC San Diego) and MTS 979 (University City) will be merged and have added service for La Jolla Village Dr as NCTD 479
  • MTS 978 (Torrey Pines) will follow existing routing as NCTD 478
  • NCTD 471 will be added as a new route to serve Hologic, Dexcom, Google, and additional business parks along Flanders Dr.
