Given a choice, few passengers would willingly board Tijuana’s rag-tag fleet of multi-colored buses that crowd the city’s major thoroughfares. Riders complain they’re old, inefficient, slow, uncomfortable — and expensive. They say that service can be spotty, unsafe, and at rush hour overcrowded. Now, after years of false starts, Tijuana is moving forward on a major overhaul of its public transportation system, often criticized as serving political interests rather than its 1 million daily users. Next fall, a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system is expected to start service to some 300,000 passengers a day, the first step in a plan that aims to modernize public transportation in the entire city.Read more
Toyota will invest $150 million at its Tijuana manufacturing plant in Mexico, assembly plant to increase output of the popular Tacoma pickup amid tight inventory that the company says has held back sales. The Mexico manufacturing expansion will bump capacity to about 160,000 units annually in late 2017 or early 2018, from just over 100,000 currently, the company said in a statement Wednesday. The move comes at a time when the Tacoma’s dominance of the U.S. midsize pickup market -- which has grown 21 percent this year -- is being challenged by General Motors, which returned to the segment for the 2016 model year with its well-received Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Honda’s Ridgeline, too, is back in the market and selling briskly, and Nissan’s Frontier pickup is up nearly 45 percent this year. Ford plans a return with the Ranger as well.Read more

A startup airplane manufacturer said this week it will open a facility in Tijuana that could create up to 1,000 manufacturing jobs.
Icon Aircraft, a Vacaville-based company, said it will use its new 300,000-square-foot factory to build components for its A5 aircraft, an amphibious sport plane. By selecting Tijuana, it raises the profile of a manufacturing sector that has seen steady growth.
"Tijuana has a skilled labor force, a lot of aerospace manufacturing and industrial-type technology,” said Icon spokesman Brian Manning about its reasons for the move. “And, frankly, the industrial infrastructure they have there.
Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, parent corporation of Tijuana´s airport announced a new Tijuana/Beijing route, is scheduled to open the first trimester of 2017. This new flight will boost the Tijuana/San Diego region connection with major business destinations in Asia.
