Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Good news for North County commuters – Thursday the North County Transit District will announce plans to re-open the Sprinter between Oceanside and Escondido.

Trains were taken out of service in early March because of accelerated wear and mechanical issues.

Buses have been carrying passengers along the route while repairs are made.

Transportation officials have been testing new brakes on Sprinter cars for more than a month.
