    Gorgeous trolley station. Local color. Great convenience store. Large. Called A Mar. Beautiful, clean trolleys. San Diego should be proud.

    Took a trip to LA from here in the morning and got some nice views of California ocean and canyons on the way. Not a bad place to wait, unless it gets really hot.

    There is only a bathroom for MTS employees. That's what you get for being a taxpayer.

    Coaster does not stop long so be ready. They always check tickets no ticket =$200. Press j to pay with cash. Coaster ticket good on trolley, sprinter and buses for 2hr after purchase.

    The only good thing about the convenience store is the .99¢ teas. Coaster AND Amtrak do stop here, although on different tracks

    Wireless internet (Surfcoaster) is very spotty, especially between Sorrento Valley and Old Town. Don't count on it.

    The 30 is chronically late due to traffic and a long route so make sure you account for this when planning your route.

    The people who run the snack shop are nice but do not go into that rest room unless you absolutely have to.
