Cross Border Express (CBX) opened its doors November 9, 2015 and changed the way in which people travel and cross the border between San Diego and Tijuana. So far, more than 7.5 million passengers have used CBX, which shows the success in having an agile and dynamic crossing at the busiest border of the world.
CBX was developed to offer an alternative to passengers arriving to Tijuana’s International Airport, allowing them to cross the border quickly and, for passengers flying from Tijuana’s International Airport, offering them direct flights to 35 different destinations in Mexico through Volaris, Aeroméxico, Viva Aerobus, Interjet and Califia, as well as 2 flights to China by Aeroméxico and Hainan.
Not only is the frequency and variety of flights an advantage, the airfares are much lower because they correspond to national flights which do not have the international tax that applies to flights leaving from airports in California. This reduction in costs can translate to a 40% savings on in plane tickets!
Even more, to make it easier for passengers, CBX offers more than 2,000 parking spaces with fees that can be as low as $5 dollars a day when staying more than 5 days.
To use CBX you need to have a boarding pass for a flight from Tijuana’s International Airport, a crossing ticket, passport and when needed, current visas. The crossing tickets can be bought directly at the CBX’s terminal counter in San Diego or at the CBX counters when landing in Tijuana.
The one way crossing costs $20 dollars per person when bought at the counter or $ 16 dollars if bought online. Round trip tickets cost $30 dollars and if travelling with family or friends in a group of 4 or more, there are special prices.
