Getting Around the City

Trolleys

Ride the Red Trolley

If you’re staying in and around downtown San Diego, Mission Valley or just east of the city, the iconic bright red trolley is a great choice. The San Diego Trolley provides convenient services from key locations including the Santa Fe Depot and the San Diego Convention Center, crisscrossing through downtown and out to Old Town, Mission Valley, El Cajon and Santee.

There are three trolley lines (Blue, Orange and Green) that service the downtown San Diego communities and beyond, covering 51 miles of track, and 53 stations total. Fares run from $1.50 to $3 one-way and trolleys run an average of every 15 minutes, 7 minutes during peak and 30 minutes during off-peak hours.

For current information on Bus and Trolley Service, visit the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System.

Old Town Trolley

A great way to get around many of the main tourist areas of San Diego is the Old Town Trolley Tours. The Trolley stops at 11 places including Old Town, Seaport Village, Gaslamp Quarter, Coronado, Little Italy and Balboa Park. They also offer a La Jolla and Mission Bay route. You can either ride on the full two-hour narrated historic tour, or hop on and off at different stops throughout the day. They also offer two-day passes and combination options with SEAL Tours.

Coaster

Hop on the Coaster

Monday through Sunday, the North County Transit District’s Coaster trains connect downtown San Diego and Old Town with coastal communities throughout the county including Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad and Oceanside. These trains offer visitors car-free access to some of the most charming beach communities in the region as well as a relaxing ride with breathtaking coastal scenery. There are more than 20 trains that run on weekdays with additional service on weekends. The entire coaster route from Oceanside to the Santa Fe Depot downtown takes about an hour. An adult round-trip fare from downtown San Diego to Oceanside is $11, and children aged 5 and under ride free.

Coaster

Recommended for North County Coastal residents:

Take the coaster to the Santa Fe Depot Station You will then need to walk over to Waterfront Park (corner of W. Ash St. and Pacfic Hwy) to jump on a shuttle to the start line. You can also choose to walk approximately 1.5 miles to the start line from Santa Fe Depot Station.

  • Pre-purchase COASTER tickets using the mobile app Compass Cloud
  • The cost of a round-trip ticket on the COASTER will depend on where you get on, but the most it will be (leaving from the north end to the south), is $11 for a round-trip ticket.

2019 SCHEDULE COMING SOON

From the Finish Line Festival, walk to the Santa Fe Depot Station. In addition to the normal operating North bound Sunday schedule, there will be a special early race day COASTER times available (above).
