All aboard, San Diego!

The UCSD Mid-Coast Blue Line trolley extension took its inaugural voyage on November 21, 2021. This new expansion connects the San Ysidro station at the Tijuana border all the way up to the UTC Transit Center, adding nine new trolley stations along the route.

Construction for the Mid-Coast trolley began in fall of 2016, intending to relieve traffic congestion that's expected to grow as the area expands. Population in the Mid-Coast corridor is projected to increase 19% by the year 2030, along with employment increasing by 12%.
