Convenient and fun, leave your car at one of the Park and Ride lots and hop on a Trolley to the Padres game. There are a few stations near the stadium.

Trolley Station Details: The stop closest to Petco Park: 12th & Imperial. But can also be easily accessed if you get off the trolley at the Park (12th) and Market stop or the Gaslamp Quarter Station (Fifth Avenue and Harbor Drive). Any of these three trolley stops will serve you equally well and without any hassles.

New for 2022

A new trolley line, the UC San Diego Blue Line, will run southbound from UTC to Petco Park daily, providing a convenient stop for fans at the 12th and Imperial station in Downtown.
