To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the SPRINTER hybrid rail system, the North County Transit District (NCTD) of San Diego announced that it will hold pop-up events throughout the year at various SPRINTER stations. The events are a community outreach effort aimed at growing ridership and educating riders about the SPRINTER.

The SPRINTER launched in 2008, and has served 15 stations along a 22-mile route from Escondido to Oceanside.

The cost for construction of the SPRINTER, including the construction of its maintenance facility and vehicles, totaled $477 million. The SPRINTER has an annual ridership of 2.5 million, with an average weekday ridership of 8,400. The level boarding at each station makes it fully ADA-accessible.
