In order to increase tourism offerings, the administration led by Governor Marina del Pilar reactivated the historic Tijuana-Tecate passenger train which was inaugurated at the beginning of last century and represented an essential role in the development of the region's infrastructure.

The state governor emphasized that the project reflects the commitment by the Secretariat of Tourism of the State (SECTURE) to provide Baja Californians the chance to enjoy and enrich themselves with the rich cultural heritage of the region.

The train will provide tourists and locals a comfortable way of exploring touristic attractions, from the vibrant energy of Tijuana to the serenity and unique traditions of Tecate, which has been designated as a Magical Town. Exceptional gastronomy and natural beauties, such as La Rumorosa, promise to be a unique experience.

"This project not only has as a goal to connect cities, but its mission is to revitalize places of historical importance, providing the Baja Californian community with the opportunity to enjoy and enrich themselves with our rich cultural heritage," Marina del Pilar said.

For his part, the Secretary of Tourism of Baja California, Miguel Aguíñiga Rodríguez, stated that the reactivation of the Tijuana-Tecate train anticipates a positive impact in the local economy, benefitting restaurants, shops, and job creation. This step also reflects a significant boost to the strengthening of tourism, sustainable economic development, and the preservation of the historic and cultural identity of Baja California.

The Administrator of the Tijuana-Tecate Short Line (ADMICARGA) emphasized that this train's hours will be from 9 AM to 6:30 PM. It will depart from the Old García Station in Tijuana and its round trip will include traveler's insurance. There will be discounts for children and seniors. Tickets are available at Tu Tren Tijuana on several points of sale and through WhatsApp at the following number: 664 694 12 86.
