Celebrating the Future Arrival of the UC San Diego Blue Line

As part of the launch of the UC San Diego Blue Line on Saturday, hundreds of people downtown checked out the newly branded trolley cars that feature the boundary-breaking work that we do, from building minds to saving lives.  Professor Todd Coleman was there to talk about his innovative research in wireless sensor technology, which inspired the tattooed trolley design.  Attendees were treated to an original chalk art piece representing the trolley’s arrival to UC San Diego in 2021.  Also on display, and available for use, are our new plant-powered charging stations at the Gaslamp Quarter and Old Town/UC San Diego Hillcrest trolley stations.
