Carlsbad Village is a commuter rail station in Carlsbad, California served by the North County Transit District COASTER line. Along with Encinitas station, this is one of two single-track stations on the Coaster line, causing a bottleneck for rail traffic.[citation needed]

The 1887-built Carlsbad station, which was used by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway until 1960, is located 0.1 miles (0.16 km) to the south. The former station now serves as the city's visitor center. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993 as Carlsbad Santa Fe Depot.

On October 7, 2013, the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner began stopping at four Coaster stations: Carlsbad Village, Carlsbad Poinsettia, Encinitas and Sorrento Valley.[1] The Carlsbad Poinsettia and Encinitas stops were discontinued on October 9, 2017.[2] The Carlsbad Village and Sorrento Valley stops were dropped on October 8, 2018 due to changes with the cross-ticketing arrangement with Coaster.[3]
