New COASTER alcohol policy begins July 1

No open containers of alcohol will be permitted on COASTER trains after 9 p.m. as of July 1. This policy was approved by the NCTD Board of Directors at their June 18 meeting. The new policy aims to curb alcohol-related incidents on the COASTER.

COASTER conductors and security personnel will enforce the new policy beginning with the northbound COASTER train that is scheduled to operate after the July 1 Padres game, scheduled to leave Santa Fe Depot 50 minutes after the game is over.

Passengers violating this policy, engaging in loud or profane speech, or acting in a manner that is disruptive or threatening to others are subject to citation or removal from the train per Penal Code Sections 640 and 587.

NCTD thanks passengers in advance for their compliance with the new policy and for respecting the rights of fellow passengers.

For complete trip planning information via public transit in San Diego County call toll free, 511, or plan your trip on-line at: Complete COASTER, SPRINTER and BREEZE schedules are available on NCTD’s website at
