North County Transit District

The Coaster is a commuter rail service that operates in the central and northern coastal regions of San Diego County, California. The service is operated by TransitAmerica Services on contract with North County Transit District (NCTD). The service has eight stops and operates primarily during weekday peak periods, with additional weekend and holiday service. Started in 1995, the Coaster service plies the former mainline of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. The main storage and service yard is located north of Oceanside at Stuart Mesa on Camp Pendleton.
