North County Sprinter...Soon You Will Be Able to Get Downtown on Public Transportation in Only 3 Hours*

*Offer only valid on weekdays from 6 to 8 a.m. in which the moon is full. Cost to be determined, but it will certainly cost more than driving yourself.

The U-T reported today that North County's Sprinter Commuter Train traveled through San Marcos for the first time Monday night.

Residents of San Diego's North County, always trying to make public transportation as inconvenient as possible, will soon be able to hop on a train in Escondido, ride it for 45-60 minutes to Oceanside, transfer to the Coaster, ride the Coaster for another 60 minutes to Old Town, transfer to the trolley and ride another 10-15 to Downtown. Simple as that.

Well, at least CSU-San Marcos students will finally be able to join in the local college tradition of trolley-ing to the border.
