Go Car Free to San Luis Obispo and Save 20%

Leave the gas-guzzler at home and take in beautiful views of the scenic Pacific coastline on your way to San Luis Obispo. Amtrak has partnered with Car Free San Luis Obispo to get you there for less, and will also save you money on area attractions once you arrive. Travel on the Pacific Surfliner or San Joaquin (plus associated Thruway buses) or Coast Starlight and save 20% on your next trip.

Not only will you help fight climate change, you'll arrive rested and ready to explore. Hop on the shuttle from the Amtrak station to area hotels, and start exploring all San Luis Obispo has to offer. Take the 25-cent San Luis Obispo Trolley to a farmer's market in historic downtown, followed by a bike ride through the vineyards, a hike among the surrounding peaks or kayak around Morro Rock.
