San Diego: Your Guide to the Comic Convention

San Diego: Your Guide to the Comic Convention

San Diego, get ready for the biggest event of the year, when Downtown is transformed into a comic book and everyone is dressed to impress. Drivers will be joining the fun and lookout for our Lyft ambassador team who will be handing out goodies in Gaslamp Quarter.

Tips For Getting to and From the Event

Need a ride from the airport? We’ll get you to the Convention Center faster than the speed of light. However, with over 130,000 people congregating Downtown, transportation can get a little tricky. Here are a few ways to ease your transportation easier:

  1. Walk a few blocks away from the crowd. Getting away from the craziness before requesting a ride results in a faster pickup, lower fares, and an easier process for finding your driver.

  2. Share a Lyft ride, split your payment. Heading out with a few friends? Save time and money by sharing a Lyft ride! Learn how to split your payment.

  3. Leave early or schedule your ride. Give yourself a little breathing room by leaving early. You can also plan in advance with our scheduled rides feature. Set, forget, and focus on the festivities.
