Escondido Sprinter to Oceanside

Escondido SprinterInformation compliments of Gary Harmon, your top Escondido real estate agent.  For more Escondido homes info, contact Gary Harmon, your Escondido Realtor. 

Several years ago the North County Transit District started light rail service from the Escondido real estate area to the Oceanside transit terminal.  (See Sprinter Schedule and Map of Stations)  First, let me say the trains themselves are beautiful and truly state of the art.  They are sleek, quiet and efficient.  The engines are diesel multiple units and they run on 22 miles of track from the Escondido homes area to Oceanside along the Highway 78 corridor.   There are 15 stations along the way.  However, the name Sprinter should probably have been “Snail” because that is about how fast they go.  If you really want to go all the way to the coast quickly, there are a way too many stops.   Best thing to do is to take something to read or work on along as you travel.  Enjoy NCTD Sprinter Video.

  • By helping get cars off the road 
  • By providing freedom for seniors, students and workers.
  • By offering reliable, affordable, and stress free transportation from inland to coast (Not affordable for taxpayers)

Service Features of the Escondido – Oceanside Sprinter

Sprinter Helps Create a More Livable Escondido Real Estate Area

The Coaster, is a commuter rail service that operates from San Diego North County real estate agea to Downtown San Diego  ( See Coaster Schedule).   The service is operated by TransitAmerica on contract with North County Transit District (NCTD).
