Convention Center is a station of the Green and Silver Lines on the San Diego Trolley. It is located in the Marina District section of the city, which features a variety of waterfront apartments just west of Downtown. The San Diego Convention Center is located adjacent to the station. This station opened in late June 1990 as part of the Orange Line's (then called the East Line) Bayside Extension.[1]

It was closed from April 9 through July 2012[2] to undergo renovations as part of the Trolley Renewal Project.[3]

On September 2, 2012, service to this station by the Orange Line was replaced by the Green Line as part of a system redesign.[4]
