Fans encouraged to travel early to see the Aztecs take on Navy

December 22, 2010 (San Diego) –San Diego State’s Aztecs will be taking on the U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen. Both teams have an 8-4 record for the season. The game kicks off tomorrow, Dec. 23 at 5 p.m. in Qualcomm Stadium. To buy tickets, visit

The Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) is expanding Trolley service for the Poinsettia Bowl--and fans can park for free at MTS park-and-rides to avoid traffic and save money while enjoying the events.


Lots are likely to fill up quickly and MTS advises fans to travel early. On the Green Line, park-and-ride lots from the 70th Street Trolley Station to Old Town Transit Center are likely to be full by 3:30 p.m. Trolley riders can go east to the El Cajon Transit Center, Gillespie Field and Santee Town Center lots, which should have ample parking. Paid parking close to the Trolley is available at San Diego State University.

Expanded Green Line Service:
Beginning at 12:45 p.m. from Old Town, Green Line trains will run every 15 minutes and continue past their normal terminus at Old Town and continue through to the Convention Center and PETCO Park.

Game day travel tips:
• Travel early to get a spot at a free MTS park-and-ride and enjoy pregame festivities.
• Buy a $5 day pass before boarding the Trolley on their way to their event to save time and avoid ticket lines on the way home. Tickets may be purchased at all Trolley station ticket vending machines or ticket booths. An MTS day pass is good on the Trolley and most MTS bus routes.
• Be patient. MTS expects almost 20,000 Trolley riders to exit Qualcomm Stadium after the game – all wanting to get on the Trolley. So while a four-car MTS Trolley can hold more people than a Boeing 747, there will be crowds and there will be a line.
