Best transportation to Coronado Shores from airport?

My cousin just told me it cost her $35 (with tip, I think) to take a taxi to the Coronado Shores from the airport. I wonder if I couldn't take the Del Coronado Shuttle which might be cheaper and then a taxi or walk to the Shores from there, or another shuttle service? Any advice? Being 65 with a finicky back, I'm not interested in taking a bus into town and then the ferry.

It doesn't sound like this would work for you--but the standard transit route would be to take the 901 bus over to Downtown San Diego. When you get to Market St., you'd transfer to the 992 bus which goes almost nonstop from downtown to the airport.

You could cut your taxi cost by taking a taxi to say Santa Fe Depot and catching the 992 there. But you would have already covered most of the distance and thus paid most of the fare.

The Shores are located next door to the Del. I'd say your Del Shuttle plan is great. Once there, you can determine whether your back is up to the walk to the Shores (downhill walk; distance depends on which Shores building you want). Have fun! You'll love it here.

Taka a Town Car - they pick you up inside the ariport and drive you right to the door! I have used San Diego Transporter and they are excellent.

Unfortunately, the Del Shuttle costs $ 32.00, so when you add the tip, it would be the same. I just called a few days ago, as I'm going to Coronado for my first time and do not want to rent a car. I'm wondering if a town car is any advantage over the Del Shutlle? We're planning to stay at the Del.

Thank you all for your replies. In the end, I was picked up by a friend at the airport. But going back I took a taxi from the Shores and with tip it was $30, a little less than the Del Shuttle and certainly more convenient.

Quickest and easiest is a taxi from the airport about $30with tip.
