As reported by Mary Forgione, a reporter for the LA Times, the purple pedestrian bridge between two terminals that link Tijuana International Airport and San Diego over the U.S.-Mexico border, officially opened to passengers on the morning hours of Wednesday December 9th.
The Cross Border Xpress is the first project to join a site in the U.S. with a foreign airport terminal. It opened 9 a.m. Wednesday December 9th and will be open 24/7. Tickets are on sale.
The $120-million private venture aims to serve about 2.4 million fliers each year who usually would have to queue up in busy border crossings at San Ysidro and Otay Mesa on the California side. The San Diego terminal is between those two crossing sites.
The bridge is restricted to ticketed Tijuana airport passengers flying out within 24 hours. Passengers arriving at the airport may use the border crossing within two hours of landing.
The bridge was free for 9 days, but after tomorrow, people will have to pay $18 each way, and it costs about $10 a day to park in a long-term lot.
U.S. Customs will operate a checkpoint at the bridge for those entering the country, and the protocols (passport check, visas, etc) are the same as any border crossing. The Transportation Security Administration is not involved with security screening on the Mexican side.
How can this save you money? You might find cheaper flights out of Tijuana, particularly to destinations in Mexico and beyond.
The least-expensive round-trip flight from Tijuana to Mexico City costs around $115 USD on VivaAerobus, a no-frills carrier that doesn’t operate in Southern California.
