Ground transportation and commuter options for major US airports    

San Diego (SAN)

San Diego International Airport (SAN) is less than 10 minutes from downtown San Diego. The descent into the airport from the east is remarkably close to downtown buildings, which can be a bit alarming for first-time visitors. San Diego International Airport is the busiest single runway commercial airport in the USA and the second busiest in the world.


Travel between the Airport and downtown San Diego on Flyer Route No. 992, stopping at Terminals 1 and 2 and the Commuter Terminal. The 10-minute bus service costs $2.25 and connects with Trolley, Coaster and Amtrak stations and is wheelchair accessible.


For travel by taxi simply follow the signs to the Transportation Plazas. A Transportation Coordinator will place you with the first available taxi.


The Red Bus provides a complementary wheelchair-accessible shuttle between the Airport’s terminals approximately every 10 minutes.

There are a number of airport shuttle companies that handle transportation to and from the airport. They cost around $15 per person. Shuttle service is available at the Transportation Plazas across from Terminals 1 and 2, and curbside at the Commuter Terminal.

Car Rental

Car rental reservation boards are located near the baggage claim areas of Terminals 1 and 2 were you will find a phone to request a shuttle pick up. Alternatively you can find a shuttle to your rental company located at the Terminal 1 center traffic aisle or at the traffic island at the far west end of Terminal 2. The airport is served by Advantage, Alamo, Autorent, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Fox, Hertz, National, Pacific, Payless, Rent4less, Thrifty and West Coast.
