The information below is from the 2019 Fair, and it will give you an idea of what to expect in 2020. Please check back soon!
North County Transit District (NCTD)
North County Transit District serves North San Diego County with the COASTER train, the SPRINTER train, and the BREEZE bus system.
San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS)
MTS serves South San Diego County with the Blue Line, Orange Line and Green Line trolleys and MTS bus system.
Amtrak Pacific Surfliner runs between San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles’ Union Station and San Diego’s Santa Fe Depot. It makes a stop in Solana Beach, where Fair guests disembark.
Save if you’re a regular transit rider!
If you already have a transit ticket — a monthly pass, for instance — you can get a $4 discount on gate admission. Present a same-day transit ticket or a monthly pass at the West Gate ticket booth to get the discount on adult, senior or child admission.
Please note this discount is offered only at the West Gate, which is where transit buses pick up and drop off passengers.
Save with our Fair Tripper combo ticket!
The Fair Tripper combo ticket is one of our best deals. It combines your round-trip transit fare with Fair admission. Save on parking fees, save on gate admission, save on transit costs. That’s why we call it our “fare & Fair” deal!
Information to help you plan your trip
Route 408 operates between the Escondido Transit Center, the Solana Beach train station, and the West Gate of the San Diego County Fair.
