Getting Around Town

Easy ways to go from Point A to Point B

Give your weary feet a rest and skip the driving – try one of these alternate modes of transportation for exploring San Diego.

Try These Fun Alternative Ways to Get Around Town

The San Diego Trolley light rail system offers routes running to various points around San Diego county including Mission Valley and Downtown. It operates seven days a week from 5:00 AM to midnight and runs every 15 minutes.

Old Town Trolley Tours offer a great guided tour on San Diego. Based in Old Town, with on and off privileges at each stop, the trolley winds its way through Balboa Park, Downtown and Coronado. The trolley drivers are packed with historic facts and trivia, and can be very entertaining. Group reservations are also available.

Numerous pedicabs are available daily along most downtown streets, particularly in the Gaslamp Quarter and along the Embarcadero in the Marina and Columbia neighborhoods. Pedicabs are a unique alternative to taking a taxi and the next best thing to riding a bike around downtown.

GoCar Tours - San Diego's fleet of three-wheel mini-cars are based in Little Italy and were designed for tourists wanting to escape tour buses. Up to two people can jump into these topless, miniature vehicles and enjoy a GPS-guided audio tour highlighting 100 San Diego sites.
