Big Bay Boom

Wednesday, July 4, 2018 - 9:00pm
San Diego Bay

San Diego's biggest 4th of July Fireworks show takes over the San Diego Bay with four barges at different points. There are great viewing areas all along the bay for this annual event! Parking is free and plentiful at Qualcomm Stadium as well as at other park-and-ride lots throughout the system.

Due to the Holiday, MTS will be operating a Sunday schedule.  However, to accommodate the many thousands of people heading to the Big Bay Boom fireworks, the Trolley will be adding significant service on all three lines!

Remember, it's a major holiday so the FRIENDS RIDE FREE promotion is in effect.  A friend may ride free with a fare-paying customer on all MTS routes on July 4, 2018. 

Prime viewing locations are near the following stations:

  • County Center / Little Italy
  • Santa Fe Depot
