Oceanside Transit Center Platform Improvement Project

Passenger Alert: Platform 1 to Reopen Monday, November 20 as Station Construction Wraps Up

On Monday, November 20, the northern platform closest to the station at Oceanside Transit Center, Platform 1, will reopen for boarding. This platform will primarily serve Amtrak customers when it opens on Monday. Trains will board on all three platforms, and passengers should allow extra time to find their new boarding location. Platform boarding assignments will be posted to direct passengers to their trains and next arrivals will be displayed on digital signs throughout the station.

Final detail work will wrap up in the coming weeks and the project will be complete by the end of the year. Thank you for your ongoing patience as we work to improve Oceanside Transit Center.

Construction on Platform 1 is wrapping up at Oceanside Transit Center.

About the Project

The Oceanside Transit Center Platform Improvement Project will improve the efficiency and on-time performance of the station’s transit operations by adding a third track, which allows for an additional train to move through the station when two trains are boarding passengers. Other project improvements include a new boarding platform to the south, extending Platform 1 to the north, adding new crossovers and turnouts to enhance rail operations, and modernizing the station’s amenities with new shelters, directional lighting, seating, and electronic signs displaying real-time arrivals and departures.

Construction is expected to be completed in late-2017. This project is a key part of the larger effort to improve and modernize rail infrastructure along Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) coastal rail system.

Federal regulations require train conductors to sound the horn when approaching an active construction site, even in a quiet zone. Train horns serve as a warning system to ensure the safety of railroad workers. More information and rules governing the use of train horns can be found on the Federal Railroad Administration’s website at
