We take our bikes and hop on the coaster to San Diego and then get on the ferry to Coronado and have a great day cruising on our bikes down the strand. Great spots to eat at and the sightseeing is awesome. It's a great plan for a day outing, The Coaster is bike friendly with places to secure them... More

Bought the transportation ticket that lets you take several options of transportation in one day and rode the coaster back to Oceanside after a long day in Old Town San Diego. It was very plesent. Clean, comfortable,and enjoyable site seeing along the way.

Let the Coaster be your designated driver on your next brewery tour! Get off on the Old Town stop and walk a couple blocks to Modern Times. Get back on the Coaster and get off on the Solana Beach stop for a block walk to Culture Brewing and San Diego Beerworks. You'll probably need some food to soak up all... More

Best cruise along the Coast in San Diego County. Get to the station early to buy your tickets from a machaine which takes cash and cards. Easy once you use for the first time, but sometimes people ahead of you might struggle a little. Once you board get on the coast side to enjoy the views even more. A lot... More

When I visit San Diego, I'll stay up the coast and us the Coaster to get into town. It's a lovely ride, and great transportation. Only concern might be parking at some stations.

We took the Coaster to the San Diego Fair. $16 paid for your round trip ticket and entrance into the fair. It was a great way to avoid the traffic.

Does it get any better? No traffic, met some very cool people (a surfer photog, for one, who shared dozens of unreal pix). That will be my preferred method of travel to get down to SD as often as possible.

We like to take the Coaster to downtown San Diego from Carlsbad or Oceanside. Buses in SD get you to the cpzoo or museums easily. Seniors and children are cheaper. It doesn't run on Sundays or Holidays.

We took the Coaster train from Old Town Station all the way to Carlsbad -- then hopped on and off to other towns on the way back. Carlsbad, Encinitas and Salano beach are all great places to hop off and easily walk to beaches, restaurants and shops. The train was comfortable. There isn't personnel around to help with purchasing tickets... More
