San Diego Flyer now offers service between San Diego airport and Old Town Transit Center

The new electric shuttle service is designed to provide connections to trolleys, trains and buses.

A new electric shuttle service is providing customers a free connection between the San Diego International Airport (SAN) and Old Town Transit Center where they can then connect with several different mobility networks including San Diego Metropolitan Transit System buses, trolley and Amtrak trains.

The San Diego Flyer service is operated by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority using shuttle buses branded with a light orange wrap with plane icons, as well as the San Diego Airport logo. The six 2019 Endera E-450 Electric Vehicle (EV) Cutaway Shuttles are charged using stations located on airport property and are equipped with air conditioning, luggage racks and an ADA ramp.

“The San Diego Flyer will provide a seamless connection between the airport and the Old Town Transit Center, ensuring passengers have an efficient way to get to the airport,” said San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO Kimberly Becker. “This is one of the many ways the Airport Authority is working to improve passenger access to SAN and we hope passengers coming or going from the airport will take advantage of this complimentary service.”

The shuttles will operate every 20 to 30 minutes, seven days a week, with stops at Old Town Transit Center, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Passengers at SAN will be picked up and dropped off at transportation islands at each terminal. The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority explains stops and intervals of service will be assessed and shuttle service will be adjusted to meet increased demand if needed.
