Uber Dropping off Passenger at the Santa Fe Train Depot
The benefit of using a ride share service is that you can go almost anywhere! Uber and Lyft both serve the whole San Diego area and its suburbs. This makes it a great option for attractions like the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, which aren’t easily accessible by other public transport.
Ride shares are also one of the most efficient ways to get to and from the beach neighborhoods. These areas are served by bus routes, but it can take a long time to get there from downtown. A ride share will get you there more quickly and can drop you off at your exact destination.
If you’re looking to visit one of the main attractions during your trip to San Diego, a ride share service can normally drop you off right at the front gate so you don’t have to worry about, or pay for parking.
While you’re saving on parking, consider picking up a Go San Diego pass in advance for your day at the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld San Diego, many museums in Balboa Park & Downtown San Diego and more. With the pass, you can get discounted admission prices to these attractions as well as many more throughout the entire city!
If you’re going to be going out in one of the city’s popular nightlife districts, like the Gaslamp, Hillcrest, or Pacific Beach, a rideshare or taxi will also be a good travel option. This is because public transit stops running in San Diego around midnight, so if you’re going to be staying out later, a rideshare is the best and safest way to get home without a car.
Taxi services can also take you virtually anywhere in San Diego. Some hotels and tourist attractions will have taxi stands available. However, in most places, you will need to call the taxi company yourself for service.
