HI Trav, Welcome to the forums. There is no bus from LAX to SanDiego. I suppose you don't want to drive so you could take the Flyaway bus from the airport to the train station and take the train. It is about 3hrs.

See:www.amtrak.com/California

It might depend though WHERE in SanDiego you need to be.

You might also be able to hire a car service like:

www.beachlimo.com The drive is about 2hrs without traffic.

YOu might also consider just taking a short flight down as that would certainly be the fastest way.

Train is your best bet if you are not driving.

I'd agree with the train,we did a day trip to San Diego a few years ago on the Pacific Surfliner,superb scenery on the way.
