NCTD's Coaster is San Diego's Commuter Rail Service and began operations on February 27, 1995 on the present alignment stopping at all 8 of the present stations on its 45 route from downtown San Diego to Oceanside. Originally there were found inbound and one reverse peak trip on weekdays only. Today there are eleven Coaster Round-trips (primary during rush hours, used by commuters in both directions) Monday thru Thursday, two more on Friday Nights. Regular Saturday service with 3 round-trips began on June 8, 1996, and today is 6. Regular Sunday service began as a seasonal Summer pilot in 2011 and was extended to be year-round and there are four round-trips. A special northbound trip operates 50 minutes after all Padres home games departing 50 minutes after the end of the game. Trains use 5 or 6 of the seemingly standard Bombardier Bi-Level Commuter Rail Cars running push-pull with the one of four F40PHM-2C or two F59PHIs locomotive on the north, Oceanside-bound end of the train.
