Grossmont Transit Center is a San Diego Trolley station located next to Grossmont Center in La Mesa, California. The station is served by the Green Line and Orange Line and is located just east of the junction between the two lines. The station serves a variety of residences, a dense commercial area, Sharp Grossmont Hospital, and has a park and ride commuter lot.

History[edit]

Grossmont Transit Center opened as part of the third segment of the East Line (now Orange Line) on June 23, 1989, which operated from 12th & Imperial Transit Center to El Cajon Transit Center.[4] Green Line service began in July 1995, when the segment connecting to Mission San Diego first opened.[4]

An improvement project broke ground on February 17, 2010 to add elevators and a pedestrian bridge to the station, which was completed and began operation on November 19, 2011.[5][6]
