After many years of hard work from the binational community, the new PedWest border crossing will open Friday, July 15! Twelve pedestrian entry lanes will take travelers arriving from Mexico to the brand new Virgina Avenue Transit Center just north of the border. From there, bus shuttle service makes quick connections to the Iris Avenue and San Ysidro Transit Centers.

The pedestrian crossing on the east side of San Ysidro will have a reduced number of lanes available for the duration of the construction project, approximately three years.
