Umbrella Agency: City of Carlsbad
Program Name: The Carlsbad Connector
The Carlsbad Connector, a new app-based, on-demand express shuttle service offers commuters an affordable, convenient, and environmentally-friendly transit choice. Operating out of the Carlsbad Poinsettia COASTER Station, the Carlsbad Connector will serve the Carlsbad business parks east of Interstate 5 (I-5) and along Avenida Encinas.
The City of Carlsbad, North County Transit District (NCTD), and the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) have partnered to combine the convenience of ridesharing with the sustainability of transit services to offer you efficiency and flexibility at a very affordable price.
The service runs from the Carlsbad Poinsettia COASTER Station and provides flexible service to our business parks in and around Palomar McClellan Airport and along the coast.
When a fixed bus route doesn’t fit into your schedule, you can simply book your shuttle service directly from your phone for immediate or future rides.
No Smartphone? You can book a ride by calling (760) 407-6080. Reservations can be made from 05:00 a.m.- 08:00 p.m. any day of the week.
