July 5, 2013 (San Diego)—Planning on attending Comic Con International this year starting July 18?  Parking is challenging, so consider taking the trolley.

The Metropolitan Transit System will have enhanced service for the Green Line starting on Wednesday, preview night. The green line, which serves many east County Communities, will take you directly to the stations in front of the Convention center. 

The Orange Line will also operate on an extended schedule during the event, and you can transfer to the Green Line at the Grossmont Center Transit station or the Santa Fe Train Depot.

MTS will also release commemorative Comic-Con 2-day, 3-day, 4-day and 5-day passes, which cost $10, $13, $16 and $20, respectively. The commemorative passes are sold at ticket booths at select Trolley Stations or The Transit Store at 102 Broadway in downtown.  To order in advance, using a debit or credit card, call The Transit Store at (619) 234-1060.   Day Passes provide unlimited rides on all Trolley lines and most MTS Bus Routes as well.

If you chose to buy day passes, you will need an MTS card, for an extra two dollars for the first use. The kiosk take cash only. The machines take credit cards, debit cards and cash.
