San Diego has three trolley lines. The Green Line goes from Santee to 12th and Imperial. The Orange Line goes from El Cajon to the Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego. The Blue Line travels from San Ysidro to American Plaza downtown. Travelers can ride the trolley to historic Old Town, Fashion Valley, Mission Valley, Petco Park and Qualcomm Stadium.

Many trolley stations offer free parking. Travelers can find on-street or paid parking at stations without free parking. The MTS website lists the number of available free parking spaces at each station. MTS warns travelers on its website that they may only legally park within painted spaces in paved parking lots. Parking in the dirt next to the station may result in MTS towing the offending vehicle. Each station limits parking to 24 hours, but travelers may purchase parking permits at The Transit Store for long-term parking. MTS does not allow recreational vehicles or campers to park overnight at any trolley station.
