Making the San Ysidro Border Crossing a Hassle No More

Jason Wells of the San Ysidro Chamber of Commerce joins us on the podcast for a preview of the speedy trip you can expect through the major port of entry. Plus, iCivics, pothole repair and the state of public education.

Anyone who’s tried to cross the border at San Ysidro knows the endeavor usually involves a long wait.

But government agencies and local officials are working to make two to three-hour delays at the Port of Entry a thing of the past.

Jason Wells is executive director of the San Ysidro Chamber of Commerce. He joined us on the podcast this week to riff on the projects in the works or already underway, including a new pedestrian walkway on Virginia Avenue.
