SAN DIEGO TRANSPORTATION - SAN DEIGO TRANSPORT CA

San Diego TransportationSan Diego Transportation - Driving in San Diego can sometimes be a major hassle, especially during rush hour traffic. Parking is also very limited in the downtown areas. Parking meters and parking lots, both of which will cost you, fill up quickly. Most parking meters have a two-hour limit while parking lots can get a bit pricey, especially during special events. The majority of major attractions have their own parking lots, but these too fill up quickly and sometimes charge a nominal fee.

The best way to get around San Diego quickly and easily is to use another means of transportation besides a car. San Diego offers a wide variety of transportation options and most are reasonably priced. There are plenty of taxis, shuttles, and buses, but probably the easiest way to get around is to use the San Diego Trolley.

It is extremely convenient and has stops at a variety of prime sightseeing locations, such as the Gaslamp Quarter, Old Town, and Little Italy, along with stops at Fashion Valley mall, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, the Convention Center, and San Diego State University. The trolley also runs to San Ysidro, which makes it an easy walk across the Mexican border into Tijuana. Those are just a few of the stops. The trolley runs north, south, and east of downtown making sightseeing easy and inexpensive.

Another option is The Coaster. Although its stops are limited it is a good means of travel to avoid the coastal traffic. It runs from San Diego to Oceanside with about six stops in between, including Old Town. Fares are minimal and travel times are fast. Both the Trolley and Coaster have extended Friday night runs, which make enjoying San Diego’s nightlife safer and easier.

Limousines are another option. There are a number of Limousine Services in San Diego that offer transportation ranging from elegant limos and stretch SUV’s to town cars and practical motor coaches. Some have tour packages that include wine and city tours.

Regardless of the mode of Transportation getting around San Diego is fairly easy and there’s ways to do it that will fit anyone’s budget.
