The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority announced on Monday the launch of the San Diego Flyer, a free electric shuttle service between San Diego International Airport (SAN) and the Old Town transit hub.
Buses will run daily, with an average arrival every 20 to 30 minutes. Pickup and drop-off is intended to meet the first and last trolley, coasters, Amtrak trains, and MTS buses with the first pickup at 4:45 a.m. and the last pickup / drop-off at 12:30 a.m., an airport authority statement read.
“The San Diego Flyer will provide a seamless connection between the airport and the Old Town transit hub, ensuring passengers have an efficient route to the airport,” said Kimberly Becker, President and CEO of authority.
“This is one of the many ways the Airports Authority is working to improve passenger access to the SAN, and we hope that passengers arriving and departing from the airport will take advantage of this free service. “
The new shuttles are recognizable by a light orange packaging adorned with airplane icons, the word “Flyer” on the side of the buses and the SAN logo. Buses stop at the Old Town Transit Center, Terminals 1 and 2.
Passengers can be picked up and dropped off at the transport islands of each terminal. The airport authority will assess stops and service intervals and
make adjustments as needed.
The service will be provided on six 2019 Endera E-450 electric vehicle shuttles equipped with air conditioning, luggage racks and ramps.
