Green Line (San Diego Trolley)
The Green Line is a Script error: No such module "convert". light rail line in the San Diego Trolley system, operated by San Diego Trolley, Inc. an operating division of the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS). The Green Line currently operates between Downtown San Diego and the city of Santee. The Green Line has the second highest ridership of the San Diego Trolley's three regular lines, transporting 13,673,926 riders during FY 2014 according to the MTS.
The Green Line is the third line in the San Diego Trolley system with service beginning on July 10, 2005, upon the completion and opening of the Script error: No such module "convert". Mission Valley East extension. The line operates along the Mission Valley East extension, as well as operating segments previously served by the Blue Line between the Old Town Transit Center and Mission San Diego, and by the Orange Line east of the Grossmont Transit Center.
The San Diego State University (SDSU) stop on the Green Line is the San Diego Trolley system's first (and, so far, only) underground station.
During a system redesign which took effect on September 2, 2012, as part of the Trolley Renewal Project, the western portion of the Green Line was extended from Old Town south through downtown and the Bayside, terminating at 12th & Imperial Transit Center's Bayside Terminal. This redesign allowed for two "universal" transfer points among all three lines, at the 12th & Imperial Transit Center, and at the adjacent Santa Fe Depot/America Plaza stations.
