For an upcoming trip, I'll be arriving into San Diego airport (international terminal if that matters) early evening. Hotel isn't confirmed yet, but it's looking very likely to be somewhere close to the convention centre, so just south of the Gaslight Quarter. What I won't have is a car!

Is there any sensible public transport options to get you from the airport down to the Convention Centre or the Gaslight Quarter? Or are there any private airport transfer buses that people have found good in the past?

Or should I just give in and pay for a taxi for the ~5 mile trip?

I think you mean "Gaslamp". (Disclaimer: I'm a San Diego resident.) – gparyani Oct 27 '14 at 20:01

There are a number of airport shuttle companies that handle transportation to and from the airport. They cost around $15 per person.

Metro bus #992 The Flyer ($2.25) travels 10 minutes to the Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego, where you can connect to the Coaster commuter train, the Trolley, and Amtrak to get you anywhere else.

Looks like the last #992 bus is about 11pm, so I should be fine! They look to be about every 15 minutes, so that seems a cheap and simple way to do it :) – Gagravarr Sep 21 '11 at 22:38
