What is CarHop?

The greater San Diego area is lucky enough to offer quite a few public transportation options, including:

  • Sprinter
  • Buses
  • Waterfront Shuttle
  • San Diego Trolley
  • Amtrak
  • Greyhound

So, why are residents so overwhelmingly overjoyed to have a pre-owned car of their own instead of being forced to use those options?

San Diego Public Transportation Options

  • Sprinter: San Diego’s light rail system launched less than ten years ago, and you can tell. Sure, it’s still nice and new, but it only runs 22 miles and serves 15 stations along the Highway 78 corridor. Worse still, it only runs until 9 p.m. from Monday to Friday or until 6 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Trains appear every 30 minutes — when things are running on time.
  • Buses: Buses cover central San Diego reasonably well — so they’re fine if you don’t mind long waits and erratic schedules. Things get worse the farther out you get from San Diego proper.
  • Waterfront Shuttle: Ah, the Waterfront shuttle. Picture-perfect views, but it only runs for part of the year and has a measly eight stops. It shuts completely at 8 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday, then deigns to run until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Leave it for the tourists.
  • San Diego Trolley: Another tourist favorite, the iconic bright red trolley is great if you’re in and around downtown San Diego. Beyond that little cross-section of the city, you’ll find yourself stuck if you rely on the trolley.
  • Amtrak: As a long-distance commuter option, Amtrak makes sense, but it’s far from ideal if you simply want to make your way around San Diego, National City, and Chula Vista. And let us not forget how pricey tickets can become when you need to travel far.
  • Greyhound: Again, shorter distances aren’t really where Greyhound shines — in fact, Greyhound buses rarely shine at all, and they tend to deposit you at depots far from the center of town.
