It contemplates the creation of the first monorail in Tijuana, which would help make pedestrian crossings more dynamic and increase the city’s tourist attraction.
“Although the project is under analysis, this action that would represent an important investment and could strengthen ties with the United States and other countries that visit Tijuana for tourism purposes throughout the year, which would also serve to support local commerce,” said the head of Sedeti, Arturo Perez Behr.

Route number 2 will cover a distance of 10.70 kilometers from Constitution Avenue to Clinic No. 27 through seven stations that are: Torre Agua Caliente, Cuauhtémoc, Calete, Campestre, Ermita, Carrusel and Clinic 27; the last destination.
On the other hand, Route 3 will be shorter and will go from Clínica No.27 to La Presa Abelardo L. Rodríguez and will be composed of the stations: Los Pinos, Avenida De las Presas and La Presa, covering a distance of 5.48 kilometers.
