Hi -

Any advices on how to get to Encinitas without a rental car, from San Diego.

Does Uber/Lyft go there ? Or is the train more convenient ?

Thanks !

Where in San Diego?

You can catch the Coaster from the Santa Fe Depot downtown or at Old Town.

Depending on the times you need, the Coaster is very cool.

Based on one of your other posts, it appears you will be traveling next winter. I would still recommend the Coaster train to get to Encinitas, but just want to warn you that the schedule is a bit more limited in winter. There are no trains at night and fewer trains on the weekend.

Enjoy Encinitas!
