Location

8th Street is a station on the Blue Line of the San Diego Trolley located in National City, California. Surrounded by an industrial area, the primary focus of this station is to serve as a commuter lot, as it is easily accessible from Interstate 5.

History[edit]

8th Street opened as part of the initial 15.9-mile (25.6 km) "South Line" of the San Diego Trolley system on July 26, 1981, operating from San Ysidro Transit Center north to Downtown San Diego using the main line tracks of the San Diego and Arizona Eastern Railway.[4][1]

This station was renovated, starting January 20, 2014[6] as part of the Trolley Renewal Project;[7] it reopened with a renovated station platform in early September 2014.[5]
