Grant to Improve Pacific Surfliner Facilities

The Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo passenger-rail corridor agency has received a $38.7 million state grant that it will use to improve Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner service.

The funding is coming from the California State Transportation Agency’s 2020 Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program.

The grant to LOSSAN includes funding to help overhaul and modernize rail cars used by Pacific Surfliner trains and to build two layover facilities in San Luis Obispo County and San Diego.

The San Diego layover facility will include maintenance bays and space for overnight storage of Pacific Surfliner equipment.
