Trolley Service to Qualcomm Stadium

For information on Sports Fan Express bus service (not operated by MTS), see here.



The Green Line provides regularly scheduled service to Qualcomm Stadium and Jack Murphy Field every day from approximately 5 a.m. to midnight. Trolleys depart most stations every 15 minutes. View the Trolley map and schedules.

On game days, increased frequency and longer trains help get fans to and from the stadium. Extra service begins running approximately 3 hours before kickoff. Fans can use any of the Green Line Park & Ride locations below, or transfer to the Green Line from the Orange Line at Grossmont Center or from the Blue Line at 12th & Imperial. 

For ease of purchase, if you don’t already have a monthly pass, MTS recommends getting a Day Pass before you starting your trip. Just download the free MTS mTicket app on your smartphone and purchase one or more Day Passes for the game you are attending. You can purchase from 1 to 20 Day Passes at a time at $5.50 each. Note: If purchasing mTicket Day Passes for a group on a single phone, you and your group must travel to and from the game together.

If you wait to purchase your Day Pass from a Trolley station ticket machine, the cost is $7 without a Compass Card and $5 with a Compass Card.

Fans who can show valid identification that they are 60 years of age or older, or have valid identification that qualifies them to use the disability or Medicare discount, can purchase a discounted $1.25 one-way ticket from the ticket vending machine. Commemorative Day Passes and Senior/Disabled/Medicare one-way tickets are sold at select high-traffic stations and cost $6 and $3 respectively.


And don’t forget—for weekend games, kids 12 and under ride free when accompanied by one fare-paying passenger age 18 or older!

Game Day Rider Tips

 

  • Travel early: Allow extra time as Trolleys may be crowded. At some of the more popular locations closer to the stadium, trains may arrive that are already full. Rest assured that the trains will continue to operate as often as possible, providing service to all of our customers. In addition, some trains begin service at mid-line points (Hazard Center and Grantville) to ensure that fans boarding at stations closest to the stadium have additional options.
  • Purchase a Regional Day Pass: Before the game, purchase your Day Pass at a ticket kiosk or Ticket Vending Machine in order to avoid lines after the game.
  • Old Town overflow parking: Available nights and weekends at the Caltrans building on Taylor Street just north of the station platform.
  • Park and Ride east of Qualcomm Stadium: Most fans arrive from the west. To expedite post-game service, riders with a pre-purchased Day Pass will be allowed to enter the stadium station at the circular stairs directly below the boarding platform. This will provide direct access to eastbound trains. 
  • Avoid attempting to bypass the line by walking to the next station: Although the line may appear daunting, please be patient and allow us to move all passengers in as timely a manner as possible. Passengers choosing to walk to the Mission San Diego or Fenton Parkway stations will find that station access is metered, allowing only a limited number of passengers to enter at a time. If you must avoid the rush, please consider departing the game a little early or waiting for a while after the game to enter the line. 
  • Accessible entrance: The ADA accessible entrance for both eastbound and westbound passengers is located the the Jack Murphy statue next to Gate K. This entrance allows direct access to the station elevator and boarding platform ramps. Passengers requiring an accessible path should use this entrance regardless of travel direction.
    • Be aware of the new NFL policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums.
