Public Transportation to San Diego Convention Center

There are many transportation options for visitors who need to get to the San Diego Convention Center. In fact, the central location of both the Convention Center and the airport make transportation convenient and inexpensive.

From the Airport to the Convention Center

If you are traveling from the airport, take the 992 bus from one of the stops outside of baggage claim. The one-way fare to downtown San Diego is $2.25. At the Broadway Street stop, you can exit the bus and walk to the Convention Center. If you are staying at a nearby hotel and want to drop off your bags prior to going to the Convention Center, you may need to walk a bit further to reach your destination.

Trolley Transportation

If you are traveling from another location in San Diego, the trolley is a convenient and affordable option. To get to San Diego Convention Center, catch an orange line trolley headed for Downtown/Convention Center. If your nearest trolley station is on either the blue line or the green line, you will have to transfer to the orange line once downtown.

For conventioneers who plan on using the trolley more than once on the day of purchase, the trolley offers day passes for a single price. These can be purchased at any of the trolley stops or the main trolley transit station which is located on Broadway and First Avenue. Day passes are $5 and allow you to ride multiple times on most trolley and bus routes. There is an additional $2 administrative fee for the first purchase so if you plan on using your pass on multiple days, save your refillable card to avoid the $2 fee.
