How to get from SAN to LAX?

by travfar

I was wondering what's the best way to get from San Diego Airport to LAX? I know about the train and bus but it's time consuming since they take me to Union Station and then I would catch a bus from there. My flight leaves at 1pm and I rather not head out from San Diego at 5 in the morning. Once when the canceled my flight form San Diego to LAX, they put us all in a big shuttle bus and took us there. Is there a bus company that regularily runs between SAN and LAX? Can I take the coaster up to Oceanside and catch a shuttle from there?

Hi. - they have daily shuttle services btwn San Diego hotels & LAX area hotels. Leave SD at 11:30am arrive LA 2:15pm
Greyhound Bus will charge you btwn $18-22 per person but you will still have to get from the bus station to LAX (Sample time: Leave San Diego 5:30am, Arrive LA 8:20am)
There are also lot of private shuttle companies but they average about $240-$250 for 2-3 people
Coast Shuttle (1-800-449-8267)

Thanks. That's helpful but the time is bad since my flight leaves at 1pm. I'm starting to think about just taking the train up the day before and staying at an airport hotel.

When in California, do as the Californians do: rent a car. You can leave at 8:00am and be at LAX before noon.

I've wondered this as well. What I've come to is most routes (bus, train, car, plane) are roughly the same in cost and time. I have taken flights out of San Diego's commuter terminal to LAX without hassle. This may be one of the easiest ways to get to LAX from San Diego. The flight time is about 40mins plus 40mins before the flight takes off, then the time in LAX it's probably the quickest method; at least until our highspeed rail gets built :-)

Travel Tips for San Diego

A Compact Downtown Area

by Bwana_Brown

I found that there were a lot of interesting things to see and do so it is difficult to pick out a single highlight! One of the first things that we did was take the narrated Trolley tour of the city so we could get a taste of all the areas of interest and then return to the one of our choice. This is a good way to get a quick overview of what San Diego has to offer if you are short on time! This photo of part of the city skyline was taken from the harbour front (Seaport Village area) while on the Trolley tour.

Prickly pear cacti

by Yaqui

Prickly pear cacti is a very well know species of plant that I personally grew not to like upclose…….but I sure do still respect it and admire it for its hardiness. It grows these flat rounded platyclades as they call them, and usually are covered with needles or spines. Ouch, these little coats of armor hurt, believe me. My Aunt Carmen had a huge tree like bush of these in her San Fernando stucco home. I will say they do produce some pretty awesome blooms, which a huge contrast to how God has designed them. They are prominent in the West and Southwest of the US and Mexico.

They are a very good reason to stay on your path!

The world-famous San Diego Zoo...

by toltek

The world-famous San Diego Zoo - was founded by Dr. Harry Wegeforth in 1916.
This colorful and extremely enterprising San Diego physician started the collection with a handful of animals left over from the Panama-California Exposition. Today, the San Diego Zoo cares for more than 4,000 individual animals representing 800 different species. Its collection of animals, as well as its plant collection of over 6,500 species, is acknowledged as one of the finest in the entire world.

San Diego County Fair

by Straggler

June 19th or there about to July 6th.
The 2003 San Diego County Fair was a great success setting a new attendance record of 1,196,643 Fairgoers. You know it’s got to be good.

Parking: Drive to the off site parking and take the bus in for free.

Admission: Check out the discount from Albertson’s food store.

Must see:
Some of the Rides!

Food: Chow down before you go in because the food is expensive and most of it really isn't very good. If you look hard you can find healthy food. (Fried Snickers Bar - Yum) But it will cost you. Example: $3.00 for water, $6.00 for a beer.

More information? Make sure you check out the website. It has all the info. Make sure you download the program file (PDF). Plan your day before you hit the crowed.

Things to beware of:
Hot during the day and cold during the night.
A backpack is in order and you can check them in for a price. Take Sunscreen, Sunglasses, jacket and maybe a sweater.

Shopping, Shopping, Shopping
Exhibit hall, Seaside, and Bing Crosby Hall - you name it they have it. Beware: You may spend the day just in these three halls.

A few local brews

by acemj

San Diego isn't really known for great beer, but there are definitely some good local brews. I've tried Karl Strauss and Ballast Point beers and in general they are consistently good. Check out the websites (where available) of the following companies for company histories, locations and descriptions of their beers. Karl Strauss (, San Diego Brewing Company, Stone Brewing Company (, Ale Smith Brewing Company (, Ballast Point Brewing Company.
