Once you exit Blvd. 2000, you'll be on Blvd. Industrial headed into eastern Tijuana. It'll start off quite empty and desert-like and gradually turn into a congested boulevard. You'll be on this road for 5 miles.

You'll go underneath a passenger bridge with a Panasonic advertisement on it, and start to see signs. You'll then turn right at a sign for "GARITA DE OTAY / VEHÍCULOS LÍGEROS" and make your way along Blvd. de los Aztecas to the border.

READY LANE Passport cards, green cards, Global Entry cards, and Laser Visas/border crosser cards.


Continue along Blvd. Industrial (called Blvd. Padilla on Google Maps) toward AEROPUERTO / C. CAMIONERA. Follow signs for the airport; you'll exit right onto Vía de la Juventud Oriente. As you continue toward the border, you'll see a sign that says SAN DIEGO. El Negro Durazo, a popular seafood restaurant, will be on your right. Turn right onto Alejandro Humboldt, and then it will curve left and turn into the left lanes of Blvd. de los Aztecas. Keep left.

Ready Lane Directions at Otay Mesa Crossing back to US

Ready Lane Directions at Otay Mesa Crossing back to US
Nov 26, 2012, 4:56 PM
Directions to the Ready Lane at Otay Mesa Border Crossing 11/24/12

Directions from Club Marena condos South of Rosarito

Go north on free road toward Rosarito to just past the guard/militia check point and turn right on Blvd 2000--Large statue in the middle at the beginning of the road. (sign says Tijuana and Tecate)

Take Blvd 2000 (nice 4-lane road) for about 35-40 km into Tijuana. You will pass several large intersections so you want to stay with the road that says Tecate/Tijuana until you get to a large intersection that says:

Tijuana/San Diego/California 905--this off ramp will go to the right and you go under Blvd 2000 towards the west into Tijuana. This street is called Blvd. Industrial.

You take Blvd. Industrial for about 5-10 km. and pass a large art sculpture in the middle of the divided road. After that there is a nice Pemex gas station on the right that has nice restrooms and good gas prices.

Continue on Blvd Industrial. You will come to and go past an intersection for De Las Bellas Artes. Then you will go over a large bridge and the next really big interestion has a sign for Garita de Otay--DON'T take it unless you want to go to the regular border crossing.

Pas the intersection for Garita de Otay/Los Aztecas (same road) and then you will see a large public park on your right.

At the first street past the large park there is an intersection for "Instituto Politecnico National" with a traffic light. Turn right here and go up to the next right "Alejandro Humboldt" and turn right again. There are two lanes on the left going east and if you stay in either lane you will automatically feed into the Ready Lane for the Otay Crossing.

We went on a Saturday Morning (Thanksgiving weekend) and it was crowded. When we turned right onto onto "Instituto Politecnico National" therre was no problem until we tried to turn right onto "Alejandro Humboldt" where there was a policeman blocking traffic so you could not make that right turn. He made us go to the left down "Alejandro Humboldt" to the next intersection and do a U-turn back onto "Alejandro Humboldt" going east again.

So, effectively you could take Blvd. Industrial to street "Via de La Juventude Ote" (the street where we made the u-turn) and turn right and go to up to "Alejandro Humboldt" and proceed east to the ready lane. We weren't sure if it was just extra busy that day so the policeman was diverting traffic. Either way will get you to the Ready Lane very easily.

On Saturday morning over Thanksgiving Weekend we hit the Ready Lane at 9:00 and were crossed by 10:00.

New Faster Border Crossing Lane Open in Otay Mesa

Post by dean on Wed Oct 05, 2011 11:17 pm

New Faster Border Crossing Lane Open in Otay Mesa - the Ready Lane
source - Baja Bound Mexican Auto Insurance

Border crossers now have a new faster border crossing option! A new northbound lane, called the Ready Lane, has been opened with the goal of reducing wait times returning to the U.S. from Mexico. Ready Lanes are already open in Arizona and Texas, but the first California Ready Lane officially opened on May 2nd, 2011 at the Otay Mesa border crossing. All border crossers who use the lane must have an RFID compliant card such as a passport card, SENTRI card, or other card with an RFID chip (Radio Frequency Identification). All passengers in the vehicle must have RFID compliant cards in order to use the lane except those under 16 years of age.

We tested this lane twice and found the Ready Lane to be much faster than the regular border lane. It took us about 25 minutes to cross on a Friday morning and 20 minutes on a Tuesday morning, both times during rush hour. The lane consistently moved faster than the regular lanes. When we crossed both times, the one dedicated Ready Lane opened up to 3 booths!

What cards can be used in the Ready Lane?
The following cards may be used in the lane as long as they are RFID compliant:

U.S. Passport card (NO passport books allowed)
SENTRI card, FAST and NEXUS
Enhanced drivers license (EDL) - States available: MI, NY, VT, WA
Enhanced Tribal Card (ETC)
Enhanced Permanent Resident card (EPR)
Border Crossing Card (BCC)
Important: RFID passports are NOT eligible in this lane unfortunately.

Why can't I use my RFID passport in the Ready Lane?
The card reader technology used at the border does not read passports.

Border Ready Lane driving walking including Otay Mesa

Post by dean on Fri Jun 24, 2011 8:06 am

updated  8/2013  fast track is no longer available, only ready lanes are available now.   ready lanes require a passport card, you can not use a passport for ready lanes.   there is also sentry which is more expensive.

Border Fast Track Pass - August 2010 Update
The Fast Track lane is still working great and that means considerably shorter wait times! We have heard that the wait is about 25-30 minutes - YAY!
