San Diego local bus transportation question

We will be in San Diego Feb.6-10. We will probably drive to San Diego from Claremont, CA. My questions are, once we are in SD can we get almost anywhere within the city we want through local bus service? Do they run late at night? Hourly? We only want to go to SD sites, happy hours, dining, museums, markets, zoo, etc. We have no interest in going to the beaches on this trip. We will be staying in a B & B just a little SE of Balboa Park. Any hlelp would be appreciated.

It really depends on where you are staying. The San Diego Trolley system runs much of the day and night.

Based on your location, the nighttime hours for the bus would be restricted.

Here is a link to the local transit system.

www.sdcommute.com

or you can use Google Maps Transit.

Just type in your actual address for the B&B to see your choices.

But the Downtown/Gaslamp area, Little Italy and Old Town tend to be the best locations for transit, especially in the evening/late night hours.

Please tell us the name of the B & B so we can help you with what bus runs by it. And / or what's within walking distance from the B & B.

We will be staying at Carole's B & B on Grim Avenue. The B & B person told us the bus runs up the block from their location.

You will be just off 30th St. which has lots of good local restaurants up and down the length of the street.

IF you put:

Carole's B&B,San Diego into Google a map will appear

On the left side of the page you will see GET DIRECTIONS

This function will allow you to see bus schedules and routes you can use to get to the places of interest on your list.

BTW you are at the NE corner of Balboa Park.

OK, you are the MTS Route 2 Bus Route, which has good night coverage. Here is a link to the timetable and map. (You are near checkpoint "E" on the map.) Nearest stop is 30th and Thorn.
