Southern California is filled with amazing attractions and activities that will make any visit truly unforgettable ― and you don't need a car to get around to see it all! With Anaheim's public transportation options, you can get to where you need to go quickly and efficiently. Check out the four best ways to get around Anaheim (and beyond!) without a car for your next visit.
Anaheim Resort Transportation (ART)
Anaheim Resort Transportation's bright and colorful buses are a great option to see the many tourist destinations in the Anaheim Resort District. With over 20 routes from several hotels to various landmarks, visitors can spend an entire day sightseeing in Anaheim. Many use ART to get from their hotels to the Disneyland Resort. They can also provide transportation to the Anaheim Convention Center, shops such as The Outlets at Orange and Anaheim GardenWalk, dining options in Downtown Anaheim, sports complexes like Angels Stadium and The Honda Center, and attractions including Knott's Berry Farm, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament and Pirate's Dinner Adventure.
New routes also include Santa Ana, where you can stroll around the hip Downtown Santa Ana area, shop at Westfield Main Place Mall or visit the Discovery Cube Science Center with your little explorer. Costa Mesa is also a trendy place to visit where you can spend a relaxing day at the shopping mecca known as South Coast Plaza. If you are looking for an all-day adventure at the beach, ART shuttles can drop you off at Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) where a ride on the Metrolink can take you to Orange County's coastal communities, like San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente.
