A makeover to San Diego's Green Trolley Line will now take passengers downtown, cutting back on Blue Line transfers and making many commutes a little easier.

As of September 2, the Green line will take you all the way from Santee to the 12th and Imperial Transit Center.

This means passengers won't have to transfer to the Blue Line in Old Town.

"This is the first time in the history of MTS that we've had all three lines come together in the downtown area," said Harry Mathis, Metropolitan Transit System Board chairman.

It's all part of the a $720 million dollar Trolley Renewal Project. All renovations are expected to be done by 2015.

Work will include new station platforms, next-arrival electronic signs, shelters, track, switches, overhead electric wire.

Work will require station closures, temporary relocations, and substitute bus services. Commuters can stay updated on the changes throughout construction on MTS's website.

The project began in 2010 and is expected to be complete by 2015.
