Welcome to San Diego! Now your next step is to map out a plan for getting around the city. Whether you prefer traditional or the more adventurous modes of transportation, you have options and all are a breeze to access and navigate.
Most of the official hotels are in walking distance to the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC), the primary meeting venue. ACS will provide complimentary shuttle bus service between the convention center and official hotels that are not within walking distance.
The SDCC sits just outside the city’s Gaslamp Quarter. This urban playground is home to a range of dining, shopping, and entertainment offerings. Also nearby is the Embarcadero, which is ideal for walks along the bay and enjoying several grassy parks.
The MTS Trolley: Has two stops in front of the convention center and is a convenient public transportation option for exploring Little Italy, Old Town, Fashion Valley and more. All riders age five and older must pay with the PRONTO Card. For where to buy the card, trolley schedules, and trip planner tools go to the MTS website.
FRED (Free Ride Everywhere Downtown): Completely free service that works through a mobile app. Visit the FRED website for the hours of operation and connection stops for these electric, open-air vehicles.
Dockless, Motorized Scooters & Bicycles: The City of San Diego has partnered with a select number of companies to provide shared mobility devices for rent. Information on the authorized partners is available on the SanDiego.gov website.
Taxis and Rideshare
Guest Services in each hotel and the convention center will assist with securing taxi service.
Multiple rideshare companies, including Lyft and Uber, operate in San Diego. Access your preferred provider through their mobile app.
For attendees with automobile access, an underground parking garage is below the convention center. It has capacity for 1,950 vehicles, including 31 ADA-compliant parking stalls. Entrance to the parking garage is on Harbor Drive. There are no in-and-out privileges and overnight and RV parking are not permitted.
Parking rates range between $15-$35 (subject to change) and payment is due upon entry. Questions regarding the SDCC parking garage should be directed to ACE Parking at 619.237.0399.
