Sneak Peek Into TIJ's US Side Terminal

Tue Jul 07, 2015 6:18 am

Here's a video about construction progress of TIJ's "Cross Border Xpress" facility leading directly from Mexico into the US: http://www.10news.com/news/sneak-peek-otay-mesas-new-border-terminal

Project by Mexican Architects firm Legorreta & Legorreta can be seen here:

CBX facility is scheduled to open in November, 2015.
My other plane is an A380.

Awesome. Any word on public transportation that can get you from the new terminal to the light rail that runs north from San Ysidro?

Unfortuantely, even though the San Diego Trolley is undergoing a US $600 million renovation, doesn't seem like its blue line will grow at all.

It is a shame because the America Plaza Station should get an extension into SAN and the San Ysidro Station shoud also be getting an extension into cbx/TIJ.

Both blue line terminals are sooo close to each airport!!!!

After looking over the Route 905 schedule, there seems to be enough slack in the sked to re-route every other one via the new CBX/TIJ and connect it once an hour to the Iris Trolley Station without needing more equipment. Probably a better way to test the ridership before dedicating a new route.

I wonder if Volaris will continue with thier flights directly out of Lindbergh Field to MEX and GDL once the facility opens. I hope so.
We're up.

I like the whole project and the option or another border crossing (this one will only be accesible for passengers not regular people), having said that I find the design of the terminal boring, Legorreta only uses the same 4 different colors on almost everything they design and the same basic geometric shapes....they lost a chance to create something beautiful.

I got a good laugh from that. I was about to point it out myself. There is a Legorretta house down the street from me that has only one exterior color (the deep orange/red). It is still beautiful. The interior is even better. One thing about that design is that it ages well. Still looks good 20 years later. Better than the usual aluminum and glass.
