Comprehensive Regional Airport Access

Naval Base Point Loma Old Town Complex Redevelopment Planning

A world-class region deserves world-class transit connectivity. For decades, San Diego has explored ways to provide better regional connectivity to San Diego International Airport. With future traffic impacts to current San Diego International Airport roads projected to exceed capacity, combined with insufficient ground transit access to the airport, SANDAG has made it a chief priority to identify a solution for a direct transit connection to the airport.  

As a result of the Airport Connectivity Subcommittee’s work in 2019, one concept being explored includes a Central Mobility Hub at the Department of the Navy’s Naval Base Point Loma Old Town Complex (NAVWAR) property.

As NAVWAR seeks to revitalize and redevelop their facilities to meet its mission, SANDAG and the highest levels of the Navy have committed to discussing a potential partnership to deliver both a Central Mobility Hub and new facilities for NAVWAR with supportive land use like housing, retail, and office space. This commitment was realized on September 19, 2019, at a signing ceremony with Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer, Mayor Kevin Faulconer, and Hasan Ikhrata signing a memorandum of understanding establishing the framework for continued engagement and collaboration.  

The Central Mobility Hub concept would include a state-of-the-art mobility hub with a direct connection to the airport including connections to the Trolley, COASTER, Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, Rapid transit, local bus, and future transportation options, offering San Diegans a one-transfer connection to the airport from major destinations in the region for generations to come.
