La Mesa Boulevard is a station on the Orange Line of the San Diego Trolley located in the San Diego suburb of La Mesa, California. It serves the dense nearby commercial area, as well as a variety of apartment buildings that surround the stop. Adjacent to the station is the historic La Mesa Depot Museum owned by the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum.

History[edit]

La Mesa Boulevard opened as part of the third segment of the East Line on June 23, 1989, operated from 12th & Imperial Transit Center to El Cajon Transit Center. The line was extended to its current terminus in 1995.[4]

This station was renovated from June 2012[6] through fall 2012[5] as part of the Trolley Renewal Project, although the station remained open during construction.
