June 7, 2023 (San Diego) – Railway tracks utilized by Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner and Metrolink trains have been shut down again, following a new landslide in San Clemente discovered early Monday morning.

Amtrak travelers from San Diego to Orange County will, however, be able to take a bus in Oceanside to bridge the gap, while Metrolink is offering stranded passengers $50 Uber vouchers to complete their trips.
