How can someone take a train or bus from/to Oxnard & San Diego

How can someone get to OR from Oxnard (in Ventura county, which is in
Northern Los Angeles) to San Diego with driving.

I am looking for a train or if that is not possible a shuttle bus (not
a stard pub bus, but the nicer kind for long distances)

Here are some points you may want to cover:
- What are 2 options to the trip?
- How much will it cost (ballpark)
- How long will the journey take (ballpark)
- Is there a place on each end to rent a car?

I would be happy to pay a $10 tip of you could also do a version of
the plan that has an overnight stop near Torrance (in LA).  If
Torrance is not possible, how about the beach area like Santa Monika
or Vince beach.

Thanx in advnce

Hello sherpaj-ga,

Since you?re not interested in regular interurban bus services I think
there are only two approaches for the trip you want to make ? take
Amtrak or use a limousine service. Below I?ve provided you with links
to help you explore these options for alternatives for driving from
Oxnard to San Diego.

Wishing you a fun trip.

AMTRAK TRAIN SERVICE
====================

You can take Amtrak?s Pacific Surfliner train from Oxnard to San
Diego. There are several departure times daily. The price is $28. The
trip is about five hours. Although the train stations don?t have
rental car counters, they do offer direct phone connections to rental
car companies. Your best bet is to make reservations ahead of time and
have them pick you up at the train station.

LIMOUSINE SERVICES
==================

Renting a limousine may be a viable option for making the trip from
San Diego to Oxnard. It will be fairly expensive for one person but
could be a reasonable alternative if there are several people
traveling together. The rental rates depend on the type of limousine,
the date and time, and pick up and destination points. The links below
provide you a quick introduction to this option and links to help you
explore it further. Some of the sites require registration before you
can get schedule and pricing information.

I don't know if Greyhound is eliminated by "not by stard pub bus", but
it also has service between Oxnard and San Diego, as you can find on
this site:
http://www.greyhound.com/home.asp

Enter   Oxnard, ca    and San Diego, ca   in the boxes.
