Location

Massachusetts Avenue is a station on the Orange Line of the San Diego Trolley in Lemon Grove, California, a suburb of San Diego. The station serves as a commuter center and park and ride lot for the surrounding residential community.

History[edit]

Massachusetts Avenue opened as part of the second segment of the Euclid Line on May 12, 1989. Also later known as the East Line, the line operated from 12th & Imperial Transit Center to Spring Street before being extended further east one month later.[3]

This station was renovated from October 17, 2011[5] through fall 2012[4] as part of the Trolley Renewal Project, although the station remained open during construction.
