WHY IT RATES: Travel agents working with clients who love attending concerts should be aware of the unique offer from Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner.—Donald Wood, Breaking News Senior Writer.
The Amtrak Pacific Surfliner will offer special train service for customers who travel to/from the FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, Calif., from May 11 and Sept. 30, 2018. Discounted Pacific Surfliner fares will be offered for travel on select concert dates.
The Pacific Surfliner directly serves the new FivePoint Amphitheatre, which is located adjacent to the Irvine Station.
In addition, customers who present a valid Pacific Surfliner ticket at the gate will receive complimentary Fast Lane access, which allows expedited entry to FivePoint Amphitheatre.
The Pacific Surfliner travels between San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo, connecting nearly three million passengers a year to many of Southern California’s top destinations.
“We are proud to support access to live music and are excited to provide a special concert train service in partnership with Live Nation and FivePoint Amphitheatre,” said Bryan MacDonald, chairman of the Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor Agency, which oversees the Pacific Surfliner service. “This service will enhance the experience for concert goers while also improving quality of life for local residents.”
The Pacific Surfliner will provide late-night service from Irvine, California, to Los Angeles and San Diego with trains departing approximately 20 minutes after most concerts.
The special northbound Train 597 will depart Irvine promptly at 11:20 p.m. en route to Santa Ana, Anaheim, Fullerton and Los Angeles. The final southbound Train 796 will depart Irvine at 11:19 p.m. en route to San Juan Capistrano, Oceanside, Solana Beach and San Diego.
Concert attendees can take any Pacific Surfliner train to the FivePoint Amphitheatre with service from San Diego, Oceanside, Anaheim, Los Angeles and intermediate stops.
