Getting Around in San Diego, CA

San Diego offers two major public transportation options: The Metropolitan Transit System, an extensive bus system throughout the city and surrounding counties, and the San Diego Trolley, a light rail servicing the downtown area. The bus is popular with commuters, while the light rail serves visitors in more touristy areas. Despite these two options, a car is still the easiest and most efficient way to get around this sprawling city. However, biking is still a great way to travel in and between the coastal towns.
