    I went to San Diego on a budget so I decided to try the trolley, it was a good decision all in all since it gets to many places, some very far. I'm a foreigner so I didn't know what ot expect, but never had an issue. The trolley itself was for the most part clean, the people riding it just minded their own business, never felt unsafe.
    The reason I don't give 5 stars is because it was a bit difficult to get the hang of it. Nobody explains you much, how the cards work, how the tickets work, the lines, etc. Basically you buy a card with a number of trips and you recharge it after they run out. Before you get into the trolley you are supposed to swipe your card in one of the machines at the station and then hop in. Supposedly there are people checking within the trolley if you actually paid but I never saw someone, of course if they catch you riding without a ticket there is a fine.
    You can also not use a card and the buying machine emits a paper ticket, but of course this is for one way trips, while the card has other options. Also note that there are discounts for certain people.

    Anyway if you are on a budget and don't rent a car the trolley is a good option to get around san Diego, just know that you will walk a lot because while the stations are conveniently located you still have to walk a good chunk to get to some places.

    It’s great, easy to cross and beast of all, it’s safe. It’s best to purchase the CBX tickets online. If you’re an American citizen entering Mexico, fill out the required form online as well. It’s a land crossing. This way you don’t have to get in line for each. We often reserve a parking spot if we leave our car there and walk from the parking lot right to the entrance. Not cheap but very convenient. There área other parking areas for less.

    XM Transportation was by far the best van transportation for my group of 14 conference attendees. XM charges per trip, not all day, which is incredibly cost-efficient. Yonny was on time, professional, and an excellent driver for our team. The van was clean and very comfortable. In the lead-up time to our conference, Yonny was very responsive to questions. I would absolutely recommend XM Transportation for anyone needing to transport a group to/from meetings, dinners, airport, etc.

    My teenage daughter travels by herself from San Francisco to San Diego to attend summer camp! City Captain takes her from/to the Airport and from/to Summer Camp I feel comfortable knowing who picks her up and drops her off as opposed to my daughter calling a Lyft or Ueber. We always request Tina. She is on time, professional and my daughter adores her. Best transportation service ever used! Thank you, Tina and City Captain!

    My family and I recently took the Amtrak Surfliner train from Anaheim to San Diego. We needed transportation from the train station in San Diego to Sesame Place San Diego and used Always Ride on Time. The driver was already waiting for us at the train station and got us to Sesame Place then picked us up again at the end of the day. The driver was again there early for the pickup and we got back to the train on time for our return trip back to Anaheim. We were spending the week at Disney..The driver was excellent. He was friendly and dependable. He even had bottled water for my family. I would recommend this service.

    This review is way overdue! I have used their service in the past month and highly appreciate their excellence in response to my request. Best transportation company in San Diego. We rented VIP Sprinter Van from ARIA Transportation & Travel for Brewery Tours. Driver Tomas was on time and very kind with my parents and friends. They will never embrassed you to your loved ones on your special occasion. Great service in SoCal!

    Clean cars inside and out, the drivers were all professionals with suits and ties. And overall professionalism was 5 stars. We indeed enjoyed spending our money with them and they delivered in all phases of quality service.

    What an incredible experience!
    Phil was an absolute expert of the area, and a total gentleman. His itinerary was excellent, and the food was to die for. A must do if you are in the area. The Valle is a beautiful experience.

    We have used 619 Limo for almost 8 years and they are exceptional. Typically they arrive early and always deliver an elegant experience from the caliber of drivers to the vehicles — a top notch limo experience. As New Yorkers, we are very familiar with limo services — 619 Limo is by far the best kept secret in San Diego.
