Santa Barbara, CA -

De-stress, unplug and relax aboard Amtrak® to Santa Barbara this year. The Santa Barbara Car Free Project today announced that when registering at www.SantaBarbaraCarFree.org, visitors can receive 20 percent savings on Amtrak Pacific Surfliner ®and San Joaquin® (and linked buses) to/from all nine Amtrak stations in Santa Barbara County (Santa Barbara, Goleta, Carpinteria, Solvang, Buellton, Lompoc, Surf, Guadalupe & Santa Maria) valid for travel through December 16, 2014. (Three-day advance purchase required; blackout dates and restrictions apply, see Car Free website for details and to make reservations).

Mary Byrd, Manager of the award-winning project at the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District remarked “Take a vacation from your car and discover what you can see car free. Instead of sitting in your vehicle staring at the road ahead of you, you’ll be on the train, looking out the window at surf, sky and mountains; your vacation has already begun. Then when you arrive at the train station in Santa Barbara, you are just two blocks from the beach, in the heart of the city surrounded by hotels, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, art galleries and unlimited possibilities to relax and renew.”

Taking the train to enjoy Santa Barbara’s major festivals is a special treat—since activities and attractions are all within easy walking distance of the train station. Discover Santa Barbara Car Free while attending the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (January 30-February 9) and don’t miss the accompanying Film Feast to enjoy lodging and dining savings.

Santa Barbara Car Free is an award-winning project founded and led by the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District with more than 100 community partners who want to help you make the most of your special car free experiences.
