Pacific Surfliner Route Map

Admire the Pacific Views as You Curl along the Southern California Coast

Connecting San Luis Obispo and San Diego through Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, the Pacific Surfliner offers a unique vantage on the Southern California seascape. To get a closer look, you'd have to be on a surfboard, which, believe it or not, you're welcome to bring onboard, since the Pacific Surfliner has special racks to accommodate the bikes and boards of our more outdoor-minded riders.

Starting at the southern end of the route, you'll find an almost endless list of attractions in the sun-splashed city of San Diego. Take in a thrilling aquatic show at SeaWorld®. Stroll by the many shops and restaurants of the Gaslamp Quarter. Or take a sandy step back in time at the grand old Victorian beachfront Hotel del Coronado.

Heading north, the route takes you directly through Anaheim, making the Pacific Surfliner your ticket to a worry-free trip to Disneyland® and Disney California Adventure® Park.

Of course, there's always plenty of reason to stop in Los Angeles. The home of the stars is also home to Universal Studios HollywoodSM, the stunning Pacific Coast Highway and the people-watching wonder that is the Venice Boardwalk. No matter what you do, just remember to grab your sunglasses and watch for your favorite stars.

After passing through the popular resort town of Santa Barbara, the Pacific Surfliner finishes its route in the charming old city of San Luis Obispo. Founded in 1772, the city boasts numerous historic inns and theaters, and even a rare commercial building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Whether you come to soak in the ambiance or some of the delicious wines produced in nearby Edna Valley, you'll find that San Luis Obispo is a perfect place to end your journey.

Frequent Trains with Easy Connections

The Pacific Surfliner offers twelve daily round-trip services between San Diego and Los Angeles, and between Santa Barbara and San Diego. Whatever your travel plans are, you're sure to find a departure time that meets your needs. If you are traveling between San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, use the Southern California Passenger Rail Timetable combining the schedules of the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, Metrolink and COASTER commuter trains to plan your trip to cities and towns not served by your primary rail provider.
