Pacific Surfliner Schedule Changes

A coordinated schedule change that will impact Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, Metrolink and COASTER trains began Monday, October 9, 2017. These adjustments are intended to improve reliability and provide enhanced coordination with other trains operating on the Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo rail corridor. Learn more about the new schedule at

The Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) shared that the October 9 schedule change is the first of a two-part change which will ultimately allow for implementation of peak hour Pacific Surfliner service between Santa Barbara and Ventura counties in 2018, allowing for more people who live south to commute north to work in Goleta.
