Surfliner Train
Surfliner train to SLO

Most people are so tied to their cars, that they forget to consider there are other ways to get around – particularly to San Luis Obispo. The train, Amtrak, offers more than a great view! If you want to ditch the car and the traffic, consider booking your trip on Amtrak’s “Coast Starlight” or “Pacific Surfliner”.

The train tracks along the beautiful Pacific Ocean, many places where you are closer to the ocean than any roads. The picture-perfect views come standard with any ticket! But don’t hesitate to enjoy the train’s various cars. The lounge and cafe cars are known for their rooftop windows and spectacular views.

In addition to taking a very cool mode of transportation to SLO, the San Luis Obispo Car-Free program offers all sorts of discounts on hotel rooms and local activities.

So, consider a car-free visit to SLO – and do your part for the environment!
