From Thomas W. Stowell;
I wanted to advise that we recently traveled back to Southern California via Tijuana. We used CBX to cross the border which was not only a seamless transition but also did not require a Covid-19 test to return to the US. All LAX flights are still requiring the Covid-19 test so if you are looking to avoid the testing procedure or need to book a last minute flight this is a good option. You can stay up to date via the CBX website at www.crossboarderexpress.com/en. You can also subscribe to the CBX monthly newsletter to get updated information on a regular basis.
