Blue Line

Blue Line trains will travel between San Ysidro and America Plaza. Weekday early morning frequency will be increased to every 7-8 minutes.
Orange Line Orange Line trains will travel between the El Cajon Transit Center and Santa Fe Depot. Frequency will be increased on Saturday mornings and on Sunday.

New Connections

On September 2, the new Trolley network will make the 12th & Imperial and the Santa Fe Depot/America Plaza transit centers major new transfer points for Trolley riders.

Riders on the Blue and Orange lines who want to travel beyond downtown should transfer to the Green Line at 12th & Imperial.

At Santa Fe Depot, Green Line riders going to stations on C Street or Park Boulevard should transfer to the Orange Line, which leave from the same platform.

At America Plaza, the Blue Line will arrive and depart on the track closest to Kettner Boulevard; the Orange Line will arrive and depart in both directions from the track closest to the office building.
