San Diego’s public transportation system can get you almost anywhere you need to go, in the city and beyond. Convenient, eco-friendly, iconic and economical, it’s a great way to see the area. Busses and historic trolleys form a citywide network, while pedicabs and horse-drawn carriages serve the area’s more atmospheric places, like the Gaslamp Quarter and downtown waterfront. Amtrak Trains connect San Diego to LA and beyond, and the seasonal Big Bay Shuttle takes passengers to key downtown locations all summer long for only $3/day.
They all combine to form a comprehensive network, which is expanded to accommodate special events, like Comic Con. If you’re new to the city or just visiting, you can find the most efficient routes for your journey at sdcommute.com‘s trip planner, and live departure times are available at stmts.com. Most one-way tickets within the city cost $2.25-$2.50, and standard day passes cost $5. Children under 5 years old ride free. Compass Cards are rechargeable.
