Oceanside, Calif.’s North County Transit District (NCTD) held a ribbon cutting event for its new, on-demand transit service, which provides affordable rides within a service zone in the City of San Marcos.

Elected officials, stakeholders and community members attended the free event to officially launch the beginning of NCTD+.

“Developing new ways to increase mobility, provide more connectivity to our transportation network, and bring new assets to the communities we serve is a key focus for The District,” said Shawn M. Donaghy, NCTD CEO. “This flexible, on-demand service offers the first and last mile connection that will help attract more people to transit.”

NCTD’s New On-Demand Service

San Marcos is the first of four North County areas to receive this new on-demand service over the coming years during the pilot program.

 The NCTD+ service is available within in a 10 square mile zone in San Marcos, including connections to four Sprinter commuter rail stations and 72 Breeze bus stops, as well as key locations such as Palomar College, California State University San Marcos, and the city’s many restaurants and retail stores.

NCTD+ lets you schedule a ride wherever you need to go within a 10 square mile zone in San Marcos.

The brightly wrapped vans pick up passengers and bring them to their destination. A one-way ride to/from a Sprinter station is just $2.50, all other destinations within the service zone are $5.00.  

The service is available daily from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. The next NCTD+ service launch is expected in the City of Vista in spring 2025.
