Transportation

Getting to Santa Barbara, and then getting around once you arrive, are arguably two of visitors’ favorite features when it comes to ease and convenience. Train, plane, car, or bus, transportation in Santa Barbara is incredibly accessible.

Once here, leave your car in park. Public transportation options are as varied as the places they can take you, and include public bus, open-air trolley, and water taxi. Or go exploring on foot, via bike path, or flag down the nearest pedicab.
