San Diego light rail Sprinter

Transit Rail for Urban Rail Transport

The SPRINTER began service on March 9, 2008. This TransNet-funded 22-mile light rail transit line runs between Oceanside and Escondido along the SR 78 corridor to better manage the heavy flow of vehicles.

22-Mile New Light Rail System in San Diego for Transportation Management

On March 9, 2008 North County will have a new east-west mobility link between Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido: the SPRINTER rail line. This investment in our community is significant; it's one of the largest public works projects this region has seen. The SPRINTER makes North County a nicer place to be, here's why:

Transit Rail for Urban Rail Transport in SoCal

The SPRINTER runs 22 miles along the Highway 78 corridor effortlessly transporting passengers to work, school, shopping centers and other activities.

Riders have the freedom to read, work or relax as these European-style light rail vehicles sprint to the 15 stations.

Transportation Management to Meet Urban Population Growth

With significant population growth coming, we're all worried about congestion and the resulting pollution. The SPRINTER will reduce traffic by eliminating hundreds of cars and will offer North County residents a green alternative.

The predictable, reliable service is easy to use, practical and consumer friendly. It's easy to reach North County's top destinations using the BREEZE bus system, which serves all fifteen stations. Additionally, the COASTER trains connect with the SPRINTER in Oceanside.

Urban Transportation Management with Transit-Oriented Development

The SPRINTER also encourages transit-oriented development in the cities along the route, a prospect that supports the principles of Smart Growth.

The 22-mile long SPRINTER rail line is 53 minutes travel time from end to end.

College students and staff take note: service to MiraCosta College (easy 10 minute connection by BREEZE bus), Palomar College and Cal State University San Marcos.

Passenger service runs seven days a week; weekday service every 30 minutes in each direction, from approximately 4 am to 8 pm. Weekend trains operate every hour in both directions.
