San Diego, CA–San Diego International Airport is scheduled to remove the Terminal 1 pedestrian bridge from July 5 through 8 as part of the construction of the airport’s New T1 project.
- Terminal 1 ground transportation services which include taxis, ride share, courtesy vehicles, and rental car buses will be temporarily relocated to an area in the former Terminal 1 parking lot. All passengers using these services will need to cross the Terminal 1 crosswalk and walk toward the parking lot area.
- Private vehicles will be routed through the current Terminal 1 transportation islands to drop off or pick up passengers. Passengers will be instructed to use the crosswalk located in front of Terminal 1 to access either the terminal or private vehicles.
Parking at the airport is extremely limited at this time. Below are suggested options for passengers:
- Use public transit to the airport. There are more ways than ever to get to and from the airport on public transit. Try the free San Diego Flyer shuttle, a convenient last-mile connection between the Old Town Transit Center and the airport. MTS is also offering free rides on the 992 bus from the airport to downtown through Labor Day.
- Get dropped off /picked up. Have friends or family drop off or pick up. Taxi, Lyft, Uber, or other rideshare options are also good alternatives.
- If parking at SAN, make parking reservations ahead of time. Reservations can be made for the Terminal 2 Parking Plaza or valet. If parking in the Terminal 2 Parking Plaza but flying from Terminal 1, passengers can ride the Terminal Loop Shuttle which transports passengers between the two terminals in an efficient manner. Reservations can be made at san.org/parking. The New T1 Parking Plaza is expected to open fall of 2024.
