In San Diego, CA, cars are used as the main means of transportation, but those who do not own one can travel to other areas of town using trolleys, buses, and taxis.



If the distances between the hotel/residence and the school are not very far, walking or biking may be the answer. There are numerous people that use bikes, especially downtown, and it is a common means of transportation on a university campus.



San Diego’s bus system, the MTS (Metropolitan Transit System) is made up of a number of routes covering the area around the city of San Diego, and is an important means of transportation for people without cars. One helpful service is the ability to text in order to see bus arrival times. INX Academy is an official Pronto Center with discounted Student Pronto Cards and monthly passes. Please see the Financial Office for more information.



The MTS also includes a trolley system which covers parts of the city or San Diego. The trolley consists of three main lines – Green, Blue, and Orange. Tickets can be purchased in advance at boarding pass kiosks at trolley stations.



Taxis are typically used if a bus or trolley is not available.



These are private taxi companies which are based around the use of an associated app. Once you download the app and connect a credit card, you will be able to conveniently call a vehicle. This method is often preferred by many foreigners because the price is cheaper than a regular taxi.



Because the Western side of the US doesn’t have as well developed a public transit system as the East coast, many people in the West use cars to travel the longer distances involved with commutes.
