Amtrak Thruway Service to and from UCLA
The Westwood/UCLA Amtrak Thruway is a dedicated bus connection to San Joaquin and Pacific Surfliner trains. It makes Amtrak train travel seamless, easy and economical. It’s a short walk from UCLA residence halls to get to Central Valley destinations including Fresno and Sacramento, as well as the San Francisco Bay Area, or travel the coast to places like Santa Barbara or San Luis Obispo. Simply board the Thruway bus with your pre-purchased Amtrak eTicket at 592 Gayley Avenue at Strathmore Place.
