NCTD’s Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule & Amtrak Rail 2 Rail Blackout


Oceanside, CA – Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, the North County Transit District (NCTD) will offer an alternative service schedule (as listed below) and the Amtrak Rail 2 Rail (R2R) program will be blacked out.

Thanksgiving Service: On Thursday, November 28 (Thanksgiving), all NCTD buses and trains will operate on a Sunday service schedule.

Day After Thanksgiving Service: On Friday, November 29, COASTER will offer a Saturday service schedule. SPRINTER, BREEZE, FLEX, and LIFT will offer a normal service schedule. This is a change for SPRINTER and BREEZE based on ridership demand versus previous years where only weekend service was offered on this day.

Amtrak Rail 2 Rail Blackout: Amtrak Pacific Surfliner trains will not accept COASTER fare from Wednesday, November 27 through Monday, December 2. During this time, COASTER passengers that utilize the R2R program will need to purchase Amtrak fare for Amtrak trains.

Riders are encouraged to check the NCTD website or Rider’s Guide for accurate scheduling information during the holiday weekend.  For trip planning assistance, customers can contact NCTD Customer Service at 760-966-6500 or visit
