2014 Transportation

We encourage everyone to walk, ride a bike, use public transit, or carpool to the march.


Sign up here to carpool to the event (whether you want to ride, offer a ride, or are flexible). Be sure to include your contact information.  If you are offering rides, you might want to use the notes section to say what your route is or if you are willing to stop on the way to the event. E.g.: “Coming from Carlsbad via the I-5, could make a stop or two in Encinitas and Solana Beach, or someplace on the way”.


Participants are invited to join our “designated coaster”. We’d like people to volunteer as “station captains” to gather people on the platform to the back of the train, distribute signs, etc. NOTE: this train is also the train going to the Padres game on the afternoon of the 21st, so expect big and exuberant crowds. Here are the station times:

More Public Transit Routes

Many thanks to Nancy for carefully researching 17 different public transit routes to The People’s Climate March San Diego.


There’s lots of street parking at City Hall (meters are free on Sundays). You can also park at Horton Plaza – first three hours free with complimentary validation, after that you have to pay. The County Waterfront park (location of the rally) also has parking available underground for a minimum charge of $10 (they sometimes charge up to $20).  The entrance to this parking garage is at the south side of the County Administration Center on Ash Street.

Grab your bike and join us for one of several bike rides that will feed into the People’s Climate March San Diego.
