San Ysidro Transit Center

San Ysidro Transit Center is a San Diego Trolley station on the Blue Line and the southern terminus for this line. The previous station northwest is Beyer Boulevard. South of this station is the San Ysidro Port of Entry at the Mexico–United States border. The station serves primarily as a way to provide access to downtown for the thousands of international commuters and tourists who travel between San Diego County and Tijuana, Mexico. Its secondary purpose is to provide access to the large shopping areas, including the Las Americas Premium Outlets which are connected to the stop via a pedestrian walkway. An intercity bus station is located adjacent to the station.[1][2] It is the second busiest station in the San Diego Trolley, with nearly 18,000 passengers using the stations each day.[3]
