Grossmont Transit Center is a San Diego Trolley station located next to Grossmont Center in La Mesa, California. It is located just east of the junction between the Orange Line and the Green Line. It serves a variety of residences, a dense commercial area (including the Grossmont Center mall), Sharp Grossmont Hospital, and as a commuter lot.
