Location

Encinitas station is a commuter rail station in Encinitas, California that is on the NCTD COASTER commuter rail line. In addition to COASTER, it is also served by three BREEZE bus routes and LIFT paratransit services. Along with Carlsbad Village station, this is one of two single track stations on the COASTER route, causing a bottleneck for rail traffic.[citation needed]

On October 7, 2013, the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner began stopping at four COASTER stations: Carlsbad Village, Carlsbad Poinsettia, Encinitas, and Sorrento Valley.[1] Amtrak dropped service to Carlsbad Poinsettia and Encinitas on October 9, 2017 due to low ridership.[2]
