Comic-Con Transport Alternatives

Comic-Con Transport Alternatives

[UPDATE 5/21/14] With the Ace Parking issues this week, it may be helpful to note that there are many other parking options in downtown San Diego. Running a search for “San Diego” on the website Parkopedia  lists the many lots in downtown. Most of these are open to the public and will be available on a first-come first-serve basis during the convention. Street parking can also be found further away from the convention center – or nearby if you have really good Parking Carma. Metered spaces have time limits but are free after 8pm, and all day on Sundays. (As a super secret note: Yellow spaces are free to park in between 6pm-6am and all Sunday.)  As always, please read signs in garages and on the street when parking to know their time limitations...
