People tend to check in during these times:
Coaster tickets are eligible for some Amtrak train rides, check the schedule for a less expensive train ride with Amtrak comfort:)
Headed home! Lovely day in balboa park.
No one checking tickets on metro during Comic Con.
Be sure to sit on left side of train heading northbound...window seat for awesome water views
Beautiful day in a lovely train station !! All aboard!! Enjoying this work travel in finest city San Diego ~
Great seats and electric plugs for electronics..awesome.
Great day on the Surfline train.
Nice and cool on this hot day!
If you're traveling to a main station like Fullerton or Union, you can check bags.
Free wifi & outlets at every seat.
Free wifi and an outlet at every seat.Sweet.
Get here on time. The amtrak departs exactly at the time it says!
Sit on left hand side facing ocean, makes for a better view
Business class is so worth it! Sit on the left side to get a better view. They do leave on time so get there early!
This is one of my favorite train stations. It's never too crowded and there is always parking on the first floor.
Amtrak does not open their gates for passengers traveling on the Coaster, give yourself a few extra minutes to walk around that building.
Coaster does not wait so get there early. Press j on right to pay with cash. They always check tickets, no ticket =$200 . Coaster ticket good on trolley sprinter and busses for 2 hours after purchase.
Always take business. Coach (cattle car) is too loud with people watching movies on laptops without headphones, children crying, and people on phones, and playing games on their phones on full blast.
Just saw two cops completely ignore a guy who ran a red light and nearly nailed two pedestrians. Becareful crossing Kettner!
If you take the San Diego Trolley here, arrive at least 2 listed trolley arrival times before your connecting departure as officials in San Diego don't believe in timed transfers between agencies.
Fridays are a zoo! Upgrade to business class for your sanity!
Wifi now on these trains makes the trip even more productive
Not sure how this is business class. I rode the train 2 days ago and sat in the same seats. There is no first class seating on this train at all. What a waste of extra money!
one of the best Amtak stations I have ever come across LUV this place
Take blue line to little Italy or even San ysidro
Bring your own mifi, cause the amtrak free one is over subscribed
Biz class is totally worth it. Free coffee in the am. Free wine in the pm.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Only travel business ... Worth the extra money
Bring champagne! It makes the glorious views you're about to enjoy even more so!
Beautiful station. The ticket kiosks are usually broken so make time to get in line. Free wifi on train but sometimes iffy. Happy it's working right now :)
Always buy a ticket in advance during the holidays or comic con time. Get at station in enough to stand in line because the ticket kiosks are usually broken!
Welcome to San Diego. While here, try MyCityWay – San Diego, powered by BMW i. MyCityWay is an interactive, mobile app for exploring 40 urban locations around the world.
Definitely get your ticket ahead of time. Customer service leaves A LOT to be desired. Long lines and very very very slow at counter.
Internet may no longer be available... not even in business class.
People are slow @ counter
It's no Union Station but it's still a beauty if you ask me. Sit on the left, enjoy the view, bring an adult beverage if you're not enjoying one from business class.
There are restrooms
Standing room only on the trains leaving from comic con, get a seat fast or you're SOL!
It's also a great location to catch AMTRAK, Trolley, Coaster Trains, and the start of my guided bus tour to La Jolla.
Pee before you get here cause No restrooms
Sit on the left side!
Upgrade to biz class for $15 - includes wine, snacks, nuts, and better seats.
Home sweet home bound
If you ride a bicycle you dony have to wait in line. Set up next to coach boarding. They'll let you through first.
Always take business class- it's well worth the extra $14 to not be a sardine. Pre-purchase your tickets online and use the ticket print station for fast boarding pass printing
Pay the few extra dollars and go Business Class. Power outlets, roomier seating, and free snacks = totally worth it!
Don't miss the coaster it leaves at 6:31am sharp
