Comprehensive Regional Airport Access

Navy Old Town Campus Revitalization Planning

As a result of the Airport Connectivity Subcommittee’s work to explore ways to improve regional connectivity to San Diego International Airport, SANDAG considered construction of a Central Mobility Hub at the Department of the Navy’s Naval Base Point Loma Old Town Campus property, which is home to Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR).

SANDAG and the highest levels of the Navy committed to discussing a potential partnership to deliver both a Central Mobility Hub and new facilities for NAVWAR at the Navy Old Town Campus, along 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 SANDAG CEO Hasan Ikhrata signing a memorandum of understanding establishing the framework for continued engagement and collaboration.

The Central Mobility Hub concept included 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 a one-transfer connection to the airport from major destinations in the region.

As of April 2022, SANDAG and the Navy remain partners and have agreed to cease exploration of the Navy’s Old Town Campus as a site for the Central Mobility Hub, instead focusing efforts on potentially developing the site as a future transit stop as part of the Navy’s redevelopment efforts.
