I have a question regarding transportation. I hope someone can help me. My son is taking the Amtrak train to Camp Pendleton on Monday, April 14th to report to his PDS. His train arrives around 7:00pm. My question is, how does one get from the Amtrak Station in Oceanside to Camp Pendleton? Is the Oceanside train station the best station to get off of? All the cab companies have said the cost of a cab will be between $35-45. His train ticket was only $40. Please help.
Oceanside is probably the closest unless he'll be at one of the northern camps. Then San Clemente is closer. The North Country Transit District runs a couple of buses on to base so that may be an option. The base also has the Liberty Launch shuttle service, so he could also call them to try to arrange something.
In addition, he will file a travel claim once he checks in. He will be reimbursed for his travel expenses, so he should get and keep his receipts.
