The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority Monday announced the launch of the San Diego Flyer, a free electric shuttle service between San Diego International Airport and Old Town Transit Center.

Buses will run daily, arriving every 20 to 30 minutes on average. 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., according to Kimberly. Becker, president and CEO of the airport authority.

“The San Diego Flyer will provide a seamless connection between the airport and the Old Town transit hub, ensuring passengers have an efficient way to get to the airport,” Becker said.

“This is one of the many ways that the airport authority is working to improve passenger access to the SAN, and we hope that passengers arriving or 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 evaluate stops and service intervals and make any necessary adjustments.

The service will be provided on six 2019 Endera E-450 electric vehicle shuttles equipped with air conditioning, luggage racks and ramps.

More information on the San Diego Flyer is available online.
