OCEANSIDE – The COASTER Holiday Express is coming back to town this year, in person, for two weekends. The annual North County Transit District holiday tradition for families offers a 65-minute round trip from Oceanside to Solana Beach on a festively decorated COASTER train. During the ride, children of all ages are invited to visit with Santa Claus and his merry friends.
To allow for more families to attend, NCTD is holding this event on two separate weekends, Dec. 4-5 and Dec. 11-12, with trains departing at 10:15 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
The Holiday Express runs rain or shine from the Oceanside Transit Center and takes passengers on a journey down the coastline riding on the festive holiday COASTER train. During the event, riders will sing along with carolers, relay holiday wish lists to Santa Claus and his elves and spend time with some princesses.
Tickets for the Holiday Express go on sale Thursday, Nov. 4, at 9 a.m. and are $20 per person. In keeping with state and federal orders, masks will be required on the train. Strollers and bikes are not permitted on board. Visit http://GoNCTD.com/holidayexpress to purchase tickets.
