OCEANSIDE (CNS) - Changes for the North County Transit District's train services begin Monday with a new schedule for the Coaster, which runs from Oceanside to San Diego.
The first of 11 Coaster weekday runs is scheduled to leave Oceanside at 5:18 a.m. and arrive at the downtown Santa Fe Depot one hour later.
The last train to depart San Diego leaves at 7:08 p.m. and arrives in Oceanside at 8:10 p.m.
The schedule differences are generally around five minutes, earlier or later.
Four runs each are scheduled on Saturday and Sunday.
Also this week, work will begin to repair track for the Sprinter, which runs between Oceanside and Escondido.
NCTD officials warn that, beginning Thursday, delays of 10-15 minutes are possible between the Oceanside and College Boulevard stations, and that all riders have to change trains at the College Boulevard station. Passengers will not need to change trains on weekends.
They said it could be faster to take express buses between the Oceanside and Vista stations.
The work on the Sprinter lines is scheduled to last through February.
Details on both service changes are available online at gonctd.com.
