light rail planned
Tijuana, located just below the last stop of the San Diego Trolley
station at the border in San Ysidro, is planning it's own light rail
trolley system. The first stage of the project would connect near the terminus
of the San Diego trolley at the San Ysidro Port of Entry-Garita Puerta México
and extend 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) along the river zone to Boulevard
José de San Martín.
source claims the line would be an extension of the
San Diego trolley but that is doubtful. As of 2013, the project is yet to begin.
In late 2009, we discovered a similar 19 km "high speed tram" which appears to actually be a busway using electric trolleybuses using tram-like vehicles with rubber tires guided on a concrete track with an embedded rail. One might call it ultra light rail Opening day was expected in 2010
or 2011. Or maybe 2013.
