Also, they are looking for "ambassadors" to help launch the service:
In mid-January 2008, NCTD will introduce the SPRINTER to the cities of Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido through a variety of community-oriented events. We're currently looking for volunteers to serve as SPRINTER ambassadors to help with these grand opening events and the start of service. Do you have a passion for trains and want to be a part of history? If you wish to volunteer as a SPRINTER ambassador, read on!

The SPRINTER Ambassadors program aims to help North County's new light rail line become an instant part of our community! The SPRINTER's 15 stations will be opening in mid January 2008. We need volunteers to staff special events and these stations when service begins. We're looking for public transit advocates, community service groups, Spanish-speakers and rail enthusiasts who have a desire to educate riders so they have a positive experience on the SPRINTER trains.
