San Diego has some of the finest beaches in Southern California – but where do you park when everyone else has the same goal as you – escaping the inland heat and catching a few rays on the sand? The answer – let MTS provide your ride to the beach! With easy access via Routes 8 and 140, you can Park and Ride and save yourself the hassle of driving in circles for a prime beach parking spot. By riding with MTS, you’ll also save on gas!
