“Great inexpensive travel.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

What a great and inexpensive way to go to Carlsbad from San Diego. It is convenient and sure beats renting a car. This is our second trip to San Diego and have used the Coaster and the trolley both times. Its fast, convenient and great price! Highly recommend.

“on my way to San Diego”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

I love riding the coaster to San Diego _ from it I can walk to Seaport Village - the Midway - take a harbor cruise - walk to downtown shopping - go to Little Italy - go to old town
YOU ARE ONLY LIMITED by how much how much you can walk. Great exercise
and a lot of fun

It's a beautiful ride up and down the coast. Better than driving! Clean and reasonably priced. Environmentally friendly!

“A ea s y way to get Downtown”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Take the coaster to get to San Diego from oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, or Solana Beach, especially if you want to go to Old Town or Downtown. It's way cheaper than the Amtrack which runs on the same line. You can use your ticket to transfer to the trolly or the bus if you need to go further.
