    Best Ways To Get From SD to Sofi? - Game Travel Ideas

    Hi All,

    my nephew is starting at SDSU this fall and will be meeting me at Sofi to go to some games (we used to travel together from Santa Clara).

    any advice on the best / fastest ways to get there by train / bus?

    thanks in advance....

    It's been a looooong time since I checked but the younger me would have preferred Greyhound. He should call around. How about a rental car?

      Rome2Rio says ... train

      The cheapest way to get from San Diego to SoFi Stadium costs only $27, and the quickest way takes just 2¼ hours. Find the travel option that best suits you.


      I clicked their train option, they forgot to put him on the trolley from SDSU to where he gets on the adult-size train at Old Town lol. I think the path would be:

      1. Trolley from SDSU campus to Old Town
      2. Train from Old Town (SD) to LA Union Station
      3. Metro rail or shuttle? from Union Station to Sofi?

      I've done the first two links but not sure on the last link, i've never done that metro train and don't know but suspect there may be a shuttle bus.

        i have been searching and there are some "chargers buses" that seem pretty cool - 5 north bolt seems like a good one.

        my nephew thought there was a one hour train, but i am not finding anything that fast.

        he will also be able to ask around once he gets there in august.

          there is no 1 hr train, no. there is no 2 hr train. Train from Old Town to Union Station is 2:50 due to all of the stops, and he has to first get to Old Town and then get from LA station to Sofi. that will be a 4+ hr excursion imo.

          I never heard of Bolt Buses, thanks for that kernel. Found 5north ... appears 2 stops and then straight to Sofi - 1 in Oside and 1 in OC.



          here's his limo option :

              I have never heard of this, this is great.
              I'll consider using this next time.

                I was under the impression you had to be 21 and over to ride the Charger bus due to them serving alchohol on the bus? maybe that's a different bus, IDK...

                    I used to be friends with Shawn the owner of 5 North Bolt. He would start a thread prior to home games and TPB members would get a discount. But he sold the company. He had an account here.

                      Lol - no idea. Heartless boozers leaving orphan kids in a ditch on the side of the road … shameless! This demands investigation!!!
