Carlsbad Good Ride is designed to provide free rides from lodging properties to key points of interest in Carlsbad. Visitors can quickly and easily book rides through the Circuit app. “Carlsbad is 39 square miles with lodging properties spread throughout the community, so there is a need for easy and accessible transportation for our overnight guests,” said Kim Sidoriak, president and CEO of Visit Carlsbad. “Carlsbad Good Ride will simplify the vacation experience and make travel around Carlsbad even easier and more enjoyable for our visitors, allowing them to avoid rental cars and the search for parking. 

Furthermore, we’re pleased this partnership with Circuit supports our promise to promote and encourage an eco-conscious lifestyle for which our city is known.” The partnership between Visit Carlsbad and Circuit will help visitors seamlessly get from their accommodations, to dining and retail experiences throughout the city, as well as attractions including Carlsbad Village and local retail shops, LEGOLAND California Resort, beaches, museums and more. 

The pilot program will also eliminate the added transportation stress for visitors, reduce traffic congestion during high visitation seasons and create a positive impact on the environment with the usage of electric vehicles. To ride, visitors can download the Ride Circuit app (available on Google Play and the Apple App Store), select their location within Carlsbad, enter a pick-up and drop-off location and enjoy the ride. 

For visitors who need assistance with the mobile app, staff at all Carlsbad hotels and resorts are available to help guests call a Circuit ride to and from their desired destination. Vehicles are a mix of ten-passenger vans and five-passenger sedans. All vehicles in the Carlsbad Good Ride fleet are 100% electric. Riders must be at least 18 years old to request a ride or otherwise accompanied by an adult. The youngest riders must weigh at least 65 lbs. or use a child seat provided by the adult passenger.
