Where do I get the bus at Tijuana Airport?

There’s no direct bus from Tijuana airport to Rosarito. You must first take a taxi into Tijuana Zona Centro, and then take the Tim Premier bus from there to Rosarito.

Convenience

As the bus ride isn’t direct from Tijuana airport to Rosarito, it’s the slowest and least convenient transfer option. Not only does the bus take over an hour longer than the taxi, but the cost is almost the same. The bus also only departs twice at nighttime, so if you land in the morning, you will have an extremely long wait time.

Editor’s Note

Taking the bus to cover the journey from Tijuana airport to Rosarito is expensive and rather time-consuming. I highly recommend taking a taxi instead.
