SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Thursday, the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System and Sycuan Casino announced a naming rights agreement for the Sycuan Green Line that will provide a revenue source for MTS.

Over the course of up to 30 years, the agreement will generate $25.5 million in additional revenue for MTS.

The Sycuan Green line spans nearly 24 miles and serves SDSU, SDCCU Stadium, Mission Valley, Fashion Valley, Old Town, Seaport Village, the Convention Center, Gaslamp Quarter and Petco Park.

The agreement will also allow Sycuan to operate bus shuttles to the Sycuan Casino from several MTS Transit Centers.

“MTS has been one of the nation’s leaders in securing new sources of revenue to support our operations,” said Paul Jablonski, Chief Executive Officer of MTS. “The Sycuan Green Line agreement will be a sustainable revenue source that will be used exclusively to help maintain our level of service throughout San Diego.”

The agreement marks the second major naming rights agreement for MTS.
