The LOSSAN Rail Corridor is the second busiest intercity rail corridor in the nation supporting commuter, intercity, and freight rail services.
The 351-mile rail corridor stretches from San Luis Obispo to San Diego, connecting major metropolitan areas of Southern California and the Central Coast. Train operations on the line include Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner; the Southern California Regional Rail Authority’s Metrolink and the North County Transit District’s COASTER and SPRINTER passenger rail services; and Union Pacific and BNSF Railway freight rail services.
Each year, more than 2.7 million intercity passengers and 4.9 million commuter rail passengers (Metrolink and COASTER) travel the LOSSAN corridor. One in every nine Amtrak riders uses the corridor.
