PedWest – El Chaparral (OPEN from 6am to 2pm)
On January 9th, 2023, PEDWEST – EL CHAPARRAL Pedestrian border crossing station reopened, but only in direction MEX to USA, and only from 6am to 2pm
This is our favorite border crossing station for picking up passengers on the Tijuana side, the reason being that, once you cross the border there is a well designed and secure boarding area (yes, there are some well designed things in Tijuana) so once you cross the border, the car will be either waiting for you right there, or just meters away, with your driver waiting for your call, to come pick you up.
How to get to PEDWEST: On the US side, the border crossing station is called PedWest located at: 499 Virginia Ave, San Diego, CA 92173.
Nearest Parking is the Border Station Parking, located at: 4570 Camino De La Plaza, San Ysidro, CA 92173.
You have to walk across the border, following the signs all the way to Tijuana. Once on the mexican side, you will see large colorful “Tijuana” and “Mexico” signs. That boarding area is called “El Chaparral”, you can get the exact pickup location in Google Maps:
Your driver can’t park at the boarding area. Your driver will be parked nearby waiting for your call or message.
Sometimes we get some available spaces right below the bridge just some steps away.
Just a reminder, there are some migration documents you will need to bring along with you in order to cross the border into México.
