As a tourist I found it inexpensive (especially for a senior), clean and takes you within walking distance of many places of interest and is convenient for the trolly buses. A definite win, win over the car.

The coaster is a great way to get around! We use it to get from San Diego to Oceanside. It's cheaper that Uber, you aren't stuck in traffic and the views are awesome! Worth the ticket!
