Getting to the UC – San Diego (La Jolla) campus:

San Diego is served by one major airport, San Diego International (SAN), located near downtown.

A taxi from the airport is about $46-$50. An Uber or Lyft is about $28-$32. Both options will take almost 30 minutes. It is possible to take public transit between the airport and campus, but a taxi/Uber is significantly faster.

Mass Transit

UCSD operates an extensive network of free shuttles across campus, La Jolla, and nearby neighborhoods.

In particular, UCSD has a free weekday shuttle that runs between the UCSD Hillcrest campus, MTS Old Town Transit Center, and the UCSD La Jolla campus. Hillcrest and Old Town are significantly closer to the airport (only a $5-$10 Uber/Lyft ride). This shuttle is a popular commuter choice!
