Wow, that website is straight out of the 90's.

Some interesting text:

"Green Ride drivers will ALWAYS"
Always... what?

"San Diego Airport by 2030"
So, the drivers will get there by the year 2030?

"Why Some You Bear the Cost.com Transportation Companies are not for everybody "
I... I don't even know how to parse that.

Most of the hotels offer a free shuttle to/from the airport

For the past few years I've used SuperShuttle to get from the airport to my downtown hotel or the convention center. I went with a shared van and it cost $8. They usually run promos for SDCC, so you can keep an eye out for that. Last year was my first year staying outside of downtown, so I used Lyft to get from La Jolla to downtown every morning. It cost about $25 per trip. I'm sure Uber is about the same pricing-wise, I just used Lyft because there were more Lyft drivers available in the wee hours of the morning (had to get in that Hall H line!).

see if your hotel has a free shuttle

My cat and I will be staying at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina.
Wonder if they have free shuttle?

I don't take much room and I can always put my cat in a Tupperware to keep her fresh.

Best to call the hotel directly to ask. There are no guarantees due to the heavy volume of people coming to town.

In my experience, the big hotels don't have shuttles. I recall asking for shuttles for Omni, Bayfront, Manchester Grand Hyatt, and Westin Gaslamp when I had those hotels in years past. What used to be Holiday Inn, now Wyndham Bayside, did have shuttles though.

Last year we used an uber from the airport to the Andez. It cost $60 ???

Uber should not cost anywhere near that unless it's the limo/deluxe service

I used super shuttle every year, including when I stayed at the MMM 2 years ago. It's cheap & on time. You can also track your shuttle on their app.

Yeah, in recent years I've been using Uber. Every time I feel like the driver was new and had no idea what was going on. I'm probably going to use Lyft this year.

Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I just stroll over to the taxi line and I'm in a regular taxi within minutes.   The great thing about San Diego is how short the ride is from the airport to downtown.  I can't recall ever having a long ride.

It all depends on your convenience vs. cost goals.

I'm with you, DKD! The taxis are right there and it's not expensive to go from the airport to downtown.

We usually opt for a taxi, too. Our flight always gets in close to midnight, so it's a reliable option and not crazy pricey.
