Expanded trolley service for public Seau memorial Friday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Extra trolleys will be put into service on the Green Line to accommodate fans who want to pay their respects to the late Chargers linebacker Junior Seau at Friday's memorial, the Metropolitan Transit System announced Tuesday.

The added trains will leave the Old Town Transit Center for Qualcomm Stadium beginning at 3:45 p.m., and depart the 70th Street Station starting at 4:30 p.m., according to the MTS.

The agency said its trains will have more cars, because of the large crowd that is expected.

Seau died Wednesday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest at his Oceanside home, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office. His play and off-field charity work made him one of San Diego's top sports icons.

Since his death, fans have left flowers, jerseys and footballs at makeshift memorials outside his home, his namesake Seau's The Restaurant, and at the many sports fields around the region that were sponsored by his foundation.

Friday's public memorial service begins at 6:30 p.m. and will include special guests who will share stories about the impact the Oceanside native had on them and others, according to the Chargers.

A private church service is planned Thursday in Oceanside.
