The journey to the city center takes around 40 minutes. The airport has its bus station within walking distance of the terminal. To get there, turn right from the terminal and follow the road to Terminal Terrestre (Nueva Terminal de Autobuses). Several bus companies, including Tufesa and Autobuses ABC, operate services to and from Tijuana Airport.


Taxis can drop off passengers at the Tijuana airport but cannot pick up passengers at the Tijuana terminal due to legal restrictions imposed by the Mexican government. You'll see many taxis ready to take you to downtown Tijuana. One is Taxi Libre which has running meters, while some have no meters. Make sure you agree on the trip's price before getting into the airport taxi. Agreement on the price will help avoid misunderstandings or disputes over the fare.
