Riders can save on train travel to San Diego plus discounted admission starting in August

ORANGE, Calif., Aug. 2, 2022 -- The Amtrak® Pacific Surfliner® has partnered with the San Diego Zoo to offer special savings to Pacific Surfliner customers for a limited time. The Pacific Surfliner train connects popular destinations throughout Southern California, including San Diego, home of the world-famous San Diego Zoo. 

Pacific Surfliner customers can experience the adventure with two special offers:

  • 20 percent off travel to San Diego on the Pacific Surfliner
  • $7 savings on the San Diego Zoo 1-Day Pass

"As we continue to welcome back customers on the Pacific Surfliner and support communities along the LOSSAN Rail Corridor, we are proud to build a partnership with the San Diego Zoo to offer special savings on both train travel and zoo admission," said Jason Jewell, interim managing director of the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency. "We invite everyone to join us in rediscovering the best of Southern California, starting with a scenic trip along the coast."

Travelers can ride the Pacific Surfliner to San Diego from points throughout Southern California, including Orange County, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo. From the Santa Fe Depot in Downtown San Diego, the San Diego Zoo is accessible by a bus, rideshare, or taxi connection to Balboa Park. At the zoo, visitors can learn about nature, actively play, and encounter new species at the Denny Sanford Wildlife Explorers Basecamp, which opened earlier this year and is included with general admission.
