LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Amtrak Pacific Surfliner train will begin to offer more services Monday, after being mostly shut down for weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Amtrak Pacific Surfliner rail will begin servicing San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County, restoring around 100 miles of the 351-mile Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo coastal rail corridor

Since March 23, the Pacific Surfliner has been offering a temporarily reduced schedule due to safer-at-home orders statewide. Some trains and bus connections continued to operate to provide options for those who must travel.
