X Games partnered with Visit Ventura and Amtrak Pacific Surfliner to provide access from key Southern California cities to the X Games event, bringing ticket-holders to and from Ventura this summer.

“Fans will be coming to X Games from all over Southern California and we wanted to provide them with a more sustainable way to travel to Ventura for the event,” said Valerie Ryan, X Games Vice President, Fan Experience & Hospitality.

The Pacific Surfliner is the second busiest Amtrak route in the country and one of the most scenic train routes in America. The train travels along the Southern California coast, through diverse landscapes that include beaches, low mountain passes, and agriculture. The Ventura stop is part of the Fairgrounds parking lot, a few feet from where X Games three-day event will take place.

Trains are 46 percent more energy efficient than traveling by car, and each Pacific Surfliner train can take as many as 290 cars off the road. Passengers can enjoy reclining seats, power outlets, Wi-Fi, and a market café with snacks and drinks, as well the ability to carry on skateboards and surfboards. Bikes can be transported with a free reservation.

A total of 10 Pacific Surfliner trips operate to Ventura daily, from as far north as San Luis Obispo and as far south as San Juan Capistrano. During the event, an additional trip will be added to the schedule to provide customers with a late-night departure option from Ventura back to Los Angeles. With approximately 500 seats on board each Pacific Surfliner train, there is a potential to carry more than 16,000 passengers to and from the event over the three-day period.

The X Games creative will feature seven athletes to include: Sky Brown, Rayssa Leal, Nyjah Huston, Kevin Peraza, Jackson Strong, Jamie Foy and Garrett Reynolds and fully cover two train cars. The design will also feature a custom X Games QR code so fans can sign up for event information via text alerts. Developed in partnership with Visit Ventura, the design of the wrap celebrates the dreamy, laid-back vibes of Southern California’s coastal communities.

The train wrap is visible on the Pacific Surfliner starting Thursday, June 22, and is expected to remain in service through the end of the year. The train is expected to depart Los Angeles Union Station around 7 a.m., traveling to San Luis Obispo and the second train will make its way back later in the day and evening.
