- Trolley to San Ysidro- Gateway to Tijuana and Mexico
Since the majority of people going to Tijuana are coming from the San Diego area, it may be useful to know that from most hotels / motels there is a bus that will take you to a trolley station. The south bound, Blue Line Trolley ends in San Ysidro, within walking distance of the border to Tijuana, Mexico. The time it takes the trolley to travel from it's northern point, the San Diego Mission to the southern end is about an hour. Depending where you board the trolley you can guess how long it will take to get to the border. If you are not familiar with public transportation in general, the phone number listed here will supply you with the nearest bus stop or trolley station to your lodgings. It is possible to take the SD Trolley all the way to the border, then walk across into Tijuana.
