This is also known as the LOSSAN schedule — LOSSAN stands for the rail corridors that run between San Luis Obispo in the north and San Diego in the south. From LOSSAN’s web page:
The LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency (Agency) is a joint powers authority originally formed in 1989 that works to increase ridership, revenue, capacity, reliability, coordination and safety on the coastal rail line between San Diego, Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo. It is governed by a 11-member Board of Directors composed of elected officials representing rail owners, operators, and planning agencies along the rail corridor.  The LOSSAN Agency is staffed by the Orange County Transportation Authority.
Amtrak, Metrolink and Coaster trains connect with local transit at numerous locations throughout Southern California — most notably Metro buses and trains in Los Angeles County, OCTA buses in Orange County, NCTD buses and trains in northern San Diego County and the San Diego trolley and bus system in San Diego and surrounding area.

Many of the cities served by Amtrak and commuter rail area also served by their own municipal bus lines.
