Take the Coaster Train to Padres games

Posted in 2022 in

A round-trip ticket from North County to Petco Park costs $15, much cheaper than the price of gasoline, parking fees, stress and traffic associated with driving to the Padres game. Enjoy the safe ride and a nice frosty beer when you get to the stadium.

Starting May 1, 2022, the new regional Youth Opportunity Pass allows those 18 and under with a Youth PRONTO card or account to ride free, making the COASTER a cost-effective way for families to get to the game.

The Coaster schedule has a dedicated train just for those attending San Diego Padres. Keep an eye out for northbound COASTER 699, aka ‘Padres Train,’ which will depart one hour after the conclusion of most baseball games or (or post-game fireworks) with an absolute departure of midnight. Baseball fans can catch the train from the Santa Fe Depot train station.

$15 Regional Day Passes are the way to go. ($7.50 for children 6-18). They include round trip ride on the Coaster and free Trolley connections to Petco Park. Children 5 and under are free.

If you are departing from Sorrento Valley or further south to Petco stadium, your fares will be cheaper. For additional reference, view the NCTD Rider’s Guide.

Amtrak Pacific Surfliner also offers 12 trips each day to Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego from Los Angeles, Orange County and North San Diego County.

Note, there is no alcohol consumption or open containers allowed on the Coaster.
