Carlsbad Poinsettia is a commuter rail station in Carlsbad, California served by the North County Transit District COASTER line. The station serves the Poinsettia and La Costa communities of Carlsbad. It is located 3.8 miles away from the LEGOLAND California Theme Park and 4.1 miles from McClellan-Palomar Airport.
Due to a LOSSAN project, the station is currently undergoing a major renovation that is set to be completed in 2020 with a budget of $33.7 million. The project involves the lengthening of the platforms to 1,000 feet, relocating the tracks, creating a new fence barrier inside the station, and adding a pedestrian underpass to replace the two pedestrian grade crossings located at either end of the station.
On October 7, 2013, the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner began stopping at four Coaster stations: Carlsbad Village, Carlsbad Poinsettia, Encinitas, and Sorrento Valley. Amtrak dropped service to Carlsbad Poinsettia and Encinitas on October 9, 2017 due to low ridership.
