Ride MTS to PETCO Park

 

Check the main Trolley information page for the Trolley map and schedules.

NEW! Mobile ticketing now available for Padres home opener and weekend game days!


Trolley to PETCO Park

 

Instead of paying for expensive parking downtown, why not park for free at most Trolley stations and ride the Trolley to PETCO Park? It's a wallet-friendly, easy way to get to the game!

Purchasing a Day Pass

Mobile ticketing is now available for select Padres games! Get your tickets from the comfort of your home, right on your phone! Each Day Pass is only $5.50 with mTicket. Using the MTS mTicket app is easy as 1-2-3!

1. Download the free mTicket app on your phone.

2. Select the game(s) you want to purchase tickets for, and how many tickets for each. (You can purchase up to five tickets per phone. Group must travel together.)

3. Enter your payment info & your phone becomes your Trolley pass! (Please note: mTicket not valid for any MTS bus routes.)

Paper or Compass Card Passes

Want to save time and avoid lines after games? Then buy a Regional Day Pass before boarding the Trolley on your way to the ballpark. A Day Pass on Compass Card costs just $5 for unlimited rides on the Trolley and most MTS buses for the entire service day.


If you don't already have a Compass Card, purchase one from the ticket vending machine for $2 fee in addition to the $5 Day Pass. If connecting from a bus route, buy your Day Pass when you board the bus. Once you have a Compass Card, keep it and reload it with a Day Pass the next time you ride.


For the Padres home opener games, Trolley ticket agents will be selling tickets at high-volume Green Line and downtown stations (Qualcomm, Hazard Center, Fashion Valley, Morena/Linda Vista, Old Town, Imperial Transit Center and Gaslamp Quarter). At all other stations and for all other games, purchase tickets from the ticket vending machines. Exact change or small bills are suggested. Most ticket machines can only dispense a maximum of $5 in change. All ticket machines accept credit/debit cards.

 

Parking at Trolley Stations

Many Trolley stations have free parking, making it easy for you to park & ride! See the Trolley station information page for details.
