MTS Ramping Up Trolley Service for SDSU Aztecs vs UNLV Rebels

 Fans are encouraged to load cash on their PRONTO accounts prior to the game to skip crowds

San Diego - The San Diego State Aztecs will play host to the UNLV Rebels on Saturday, November 5 at Snapdragon Stadium, and the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) is boosting Trolley service to accommodate fans attending the game. To skip post-game lines and speed up boarding, MTS recommends loading cash on your PRONTO card or app before the game instead of buying one-way passes at station ticket machines.

Getting to the Game: The Trolley's Green Line drops fans off at the doorstep to the stadium. Trains will depart most Green Line stations every 15 minutes throughout the day, and MTS will increase the number of pre- and post-game trains. Kick-off will be at 4 p.m.

  • Pre-game shuttle from SDSU to the Stadium Station, beginning at 12:55 p.m. Combined with the Green Line, this will result in service every 7.5 minutes between SDSU and the Stadium from 12:44 pm until kick-off.
  • Post-game shuttle from the Stadium Station to SDSU will operate until the crowds have cleared. Combined with regular Green Line service, this will result in service every 7.5 minutes between the Stadium and SDSU.
  • Extra trains will also be available immediately post-event to provide additional service.

To help expedite the boarding processfans should download the PRONTO app in advance. Load at least $5 on your virtual card for game day, which covers a round-trip fare for Adult riders (every person needs their own PRONTO app or card, you cannot buy fares for multiple people on the same device).
