Location

Arnele Avenue is a San Diego Trolley station served by the Orange and Green Lines in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon, California. It serves as the eastern terminus of the Orange Line.

The station also has as a small park and ride that serves the surrounding residential community and also allows for access to a large commercial strip. Westfield Parkway, a major shopping mall, is within walking distance of the station.

History[edit]

Arnele Avenue opened as part of the fourth and final segment of the East Line (now Orange Line) on July 26, 1995, which extended the line from El Cajon Transit Center to Santee Town Center.[4] Green Line service began in July 2005, when the Orange Line was truncated to Gillespie Field. Following the September 2012 system redesign, Orange Line trains stopped serving this station and began terminating at El Cajon Transit Center.[5] However, the line's eastern terminus was once again extended on April 30, 2018, this time to Arnele Avenue.

Station layout[edit]

There are two tracks, each served by a side platform. Orange Line trains board and alight passengers from the eastbound platform, utilizing a switch south of the station to switch to the westbound track.
