Just got back from the San Ysidro border area and was dismayed to see that the going rate is now around $25/day for parking. It used to be closer to $5-$7 but I guess there was a re-routing of the I-5 highway that closed one of the bigger lots and now there are just a series of smaller lots that are price gouging? The "posted" rates are $7 but they don't tell you that this is just for 8 hours and 24 hours is $25. I didn't do extensive searching but I saw a few lots with this same prices.
So does anyone have the latest information for cheap(er) parking options down there? Are there options to park somewhere in San Diego and take the trolley down there?
