Arriving in San Diego – Transportation from the San Diego Airport

When traveling or vacationing to a new city, it is always important to plan your transportation prior to your arrival. Visitors arriving in San Diego should know their options for transportation from the San Diego Airport so they can save time and money and begin enjoying their trip as soon as possible.

A popular transportation option for San Diego vacationers is a taxi or shuttle. If you have scheduled a taxi or shuttle, follow the signs to the Transportation Plaza which will take you over the airport sky bridge. If you have forgotten to make a reservation, the Transportation Plaza also has waiting taxi and shuttle drivers. An airport transportation coordinator will place you with the first available taxi to take you to your desired destination.

The bus is another option for travelers looking for transportation from the San Diego Airport. The bus stops at Terminals 1 and 2 and the Commuter Terminal. Hours of operations are from 5:00am-11:30pm and the bus comes every 15 minutes on the weekdays and every 30 minutes on the weekends. If you plan to use the bus as your primary mode of transportation throughout your vacation, it is important to check schedules on the Internet to help you plan. While buses are usually reliable, the bus system can be difficult to navigate for tourists and individuals traveling around an unfamiliar city.

Most travelers prefer to rent a car when staying in San Diego. It is important travelers know that the San Diego Airport has no rental facilities on site. If you wish to rent a car, you must go to the baggage claim areas of Terminals 1 and 2. Here, there will be car rental reservation boards showing the local rental companies. You can use the courtesy phones to request shuttle transportation to the company of your choice.
