InterPride AGM&WC 2023 Frequently Asked Questions

Getting Here

What airport should I fly into?

You have two options in our border city: 

  1. Fly into San Diego International Airport (SAN). Our airport is right downtown and close to the host hotel! 
  2. The Tijuana International Airport (TIJ) may be more cost-effective for some travelers. Cross Border Xpress (CBX) is an excellent and easy way to walk directly across the border once you arrive at the Tijuana airport. (Be sure to research any restrictions or additional paperwork you may need to complete if you are not a Mexican or US citizen and are transiting through Mexico.)

How do I get from the airport to the host hotel?

We recommend a ride-share, taxi, or public transportation. 

From SAN: 

  • A bus trip (MTS) will take approximately 20-25 minutes and cost $2.50 USD per rider. 
  • A ride-share (Lyft, Uber) or taxi will take approximately 10-15 minutes and may cost between $10.00 USD and $25.00 USD (subject to surge pricing). 

From TIJ: 

  • A bus trip (MTS) will take approximately 2 hours and cost $6.00 USD per rider. 
  • A ride-share (Lyft, Uber) or taxi will take approximately 30-45 minutes and may cost between $30.00 USD and $50.00 USD (subject to surge pricing).

I plan to drive to San Diego and/or get a rental car. Can I park at the hotel?

Parking is available for an additional cost. Please find the hotel’s parking rates here. Guests may choose to park at a nearby parking lot or garage instead. 

How else can I get to San Diego?

  • Train: You can take a train to the Santa Fe Depot and take public transportation, taxi, or a ride-share to the host hotel. 
  • Bus: You can take a bus to the Greyhound bus station and take public transportation, taxi, or a ride-share to the host hotel. 

Getting around: What ride-share apps do you recommend?

San Diego is served by both Uber and Lyft. 

Getting around: What public transportation is available in San Diego?

Public transportation (MTS) is available via bus or trolley. While it may take longer than a car ride to get to your destination, public transportation is generally cheaper than other options (e.g. ride-shares or taxis). 

Attendees can use MTS’s Trip Planner tool to find their best routes. Information on how to pay fares on bus and trolley can be found here.
