Waterfront Shuttle

Hop on and off with an all day pass!

Hop on board the Waterfront Shuttle for a quick tour of the Embarcadero or use the shuttle daily to get from point A to point B along San Diego's Embarcadero!

Runs Seasonally From Memorial Day Through Labor Day

The Waterfront Shuffle will make eight stops along Harbor Drive and run on a loop that takes approximately 20 minutes. Stops include:

Not only a great way to get around between hotels and attractions along San Diego's Embarcadero, the Waterfront Shuttle is also a great way to tour the bay and see the sights along the way. Provided by the Port of San Diego and Ace Parking, all shuttles are CNG (compressed natural gas) vehicles and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant.

Tickets, Hours, Timing

The shuttle fare is $3 per rider for an all-day pass. Tickets can be purchased at Sheraton San Diego Hotel, Maritime Museum of San Diego, Urban Beach House at The Headquarters, Manchester Grand Hyatt and Marriott Springhill Suites/Residence Inn Bayfront, as well as from the Waterfront Shuttle drivers.

The Port and Ace Parking have teamed up to offer discounted rides on the Waterfront Shuttle all summer long. Riders who park at the San Diego Convention Center or Hilton Bayfront Ace Parking garages will get a discounted shuttle ticket for $1 per person when they show their parking receipt and up to four people can get this rate with one parking receipt. This will allow riders to explore the waterfront all day with unlimited shuttle rides from the South Embarcadero to Harbor Island.

Shuttle Hours:

  • Sunday-Thursday: 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM
  • Friday-Saturday: 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM

Strollers and pets are allowed on the shuttle but bikes are not permitted. 

Shuttle parking is available at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and the San Diego Convention Center.

Note: Luggage is discouraged and riding the shuttle to the Airport (or Sheraton Airport stop) is not appropriate.

Purchase your ticket and hop on board for a quick tour of the Embarcadero or use the shuttle daily to get from point A to point B anywhere along the Embarcadero during your stay in San Diego!
