Location

Beyer Boulevard is a station on the Blue Line of the San Diego Trolley located in San Ysidro neighborhood of San Diego. The stop serves as a park and ride commuter center in addition to providing access to the surrounding residential areas.

History[edit]

Beyer Boulevard 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 originally scheduled to undergo renovation starting December 2014,[6][7] as part of the Trolley Renewal Project,[8] though actual renovation construction didn't begin until January 2015;[9] it reopened with a renovated station platform in June 2015.[10][5]

Station layout[edit]
