Location

Palm Avenue is a station on the Blue Line of the San Diego Trolley located in the Palm City neighborhood of San Diego. The stop serves a variety of purposes, holding the function of commuter center with a park and ride lot and to provide access to the nearby commercial and residential areas.

History[edit]

Palm Avenue opened as part of the initial 15.9-mile (25.6 km) "South Line" of the San Diego Trolley system on July 26, 1981, operating from San Ysidro Transit Center north to Downtown San Diego using the main line tracks of the San Diego and Arizona Eastern Railway.[4][1]

This station was originally scheduled to undergo renovation starting September 2014,[6][7] as part of the Trolley Renewal Project,[8] though actual renovation construction didn't begin until October 2014;[5][9] it reopened with a renovated station platform in March 2015.[10][11]

Station layout[edit]
