We can arrange a shuttle to pick you up from the airport, for $60, and they will drive you into Tijuana, and deliver you to the clinic. Or you can have an Uber pick you up at the airport for $25, and they will drop you at the border, where you can walk across, and we can pick you up. But for those who want to take public transportation, follow the instructions below. It will cost you just a few dollars, and although it takes a little longer, it is not difficult to do.
How to get to Tijuana through public transportation
1.- Taking the 992 MST Bus.
On the sidewalk in front airport terminals you will see a bus stop area. If you feel unsure, you can simply ask at the information desk. Once you locate the bus stop, get the correct change out, $7, and when you board you will have to put it in the box at the front of the bus. Tell the driver you want a day pass, which will cover both the bus and train. Tell the bus driver you want to get off at the American Plaza Trolley stop. He will remind you, but it is in the downtown area, just a couple blocks from the pier.
2.- Get on the Trolley, (electric train) to the border.
When you get off the bus, you will see the trolley station across the street. The San Diego Trolley, is a short commuter electric train, of about 4 cars. One comes by every 15 to 30 minutes. Make sure you get on the one that says Blue Line, San Ysidro/Tijuana Border. You will take the train to the last stop, right at the Tijuana border. It will take about 30 minutes.
3.- Going to the border entrance.
When you get off the Trolley, first give us a call, to let us know you arrive, and we will send the driver for you. Then, follow the rest of the people. They will be walking down the platform and turning to the left. You will see signs that say MEXICO. Go in through the turnstile gate and walk through customs. You will need to show your US passport and fill out a tourist permit. There is no cost for 7 days, but you may ask for 180 days, and pat a small fee. That way, if you are returning for more work, you don’t have to stop at the immigration desk just show the tourist permit if the ask you.
4.- Go to the pick-up point.
Once you exit the Customs building, just follow the people, and walk down the sidewalk to the street. Across the street, you will see a building “Farmacia Milenio”. Wait for the driver there.
