Editor's Note: NCTD released the following announcement on Nov. 19, 2012.
In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, North County Transit District modes will follow the Sunday/Holiday schedule on Thursday, November 22, but will return to regular weekday service on Friday, November 23.
The COASTER will operate eight trains instead of the usual 20 as part of this holiday schedule; four northbound trains and four southbound trains. COASTER connections at Carlsbad Poinsettia and Sorrento Valley stations do not operate on Sundays or on the major holidays, including Thanksgiving. SPRINTER trains will operate every 30 minutes between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and hourly before 10 am and after 6 pm. BREEZE buses also operate on a holiday schedule.
Customer service hours will also follow a holiday schedule on that day. Oceanside Transit Center and Escondido Transit Center will be open 8 a.m. –5 p.m. on the holiday. Vista Transit Center customer service will be closed as it is on all holidays. NCTD administrative offices will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 22 and 23.
However, to accommodate passengers on one of the biggest shopping days of the year, ‘Black Friday,’ all modes will revert to full weekday schedules on Friday, November 23. Customer service hours will also revert to normal hours that day. Complete schedule information is available at gonctd.com/schedules or by calling 760-966-6500, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
