September 1, 2012 (San Diego) – Beginning September 2, all trolley lines end in the downtown area, providing single seat service to downtown from everywhere on the Trolley network. It’s all part of the Trolley Renewal project, designed to improve Blue Line and Orange Line stations and bring low-floor cars to the entire Trolley system.

Now, the Green Line will travel through Old Town and terminate at 12th & Imperial via Seaport Village, Convention Center and Gaslamp Quarter stations. Blue Line trains will travel between San Ysidro and America Plaza. Orange Line trains will travel between El Cajon and Santa Fe Depot. 

In addition to an improved Trolley network, the Metropolitan Transit System will add considerable bus services on September 2.

These service additions, which were planned with the assistance of feedback from customers, will make traveling more convenient and relieve crowding on some of its busiest routes.

Frequencies on Sundays have been added to many routes as well as to routes that are in high demand. Additionally, most bus route schedules have been changed to meet up with the new Trolley schedules. Riders should get new timetables that are now on-board all vehicles.

To see a full list of bus schedules, visit or look for Take Ones on buses and Trolleys.

MTS operates more than 90 bus routes and three Trolley lines on 53 miles of double-tracked railway. Every day more than 275,000 passenger trips are taken on MTS services. For more information on how you can use public transportation and save money, go to
