School-aged children sometimes learn about public transportation by going on a field trip which utilizes:
  - the bus (to get to Old Town Transit Center),
  - the trolley (to get to the Port of San Diego), and
  - the ferry boat (to cross San Diego Bay).
It is a pleasant trip and takes you to the beautiful MarketPlace in the City of Coronado (the "Crowned City"). Maybe you should try it too.
