San Diego is served by one major airport: San Diego International (SAN).

A taxi from the airport is about $46-$50. An Uber or similar app-enabled ride share service 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.
