Early Morning Train Service to Santa Barbara and Goleta

New early morning train service makes it possible for Ventura County residents to ride Amtrak® Pacific Surfliner® to work in Santa Barbara and Goleta.

The early morning service began in April 2018 through a partnership between the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG), the California State Transportation Agency and the Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor Agency.

Free 10-ride trial passes for the train are available here. Passes are accepted on VCTC Intercity service buses.  Use the train and bus schedules below or the VCTC trip planner to plan your trip.
