Once you arrive in Long Beach, take advantage of the city’s public transportation services available both on land and water! The Passport Shuttle offers service to major Long Beach attractions and is free throughout several stops in the downtown cultural spots; you can take a bus from CSULB to get to this downtown service (only $1.20, and cheaper if you are 62+ years old). Once downtown, you can also hail water taxis, the Aquabus and the Aqualink, with services between the Queen Mary and Alamitos Bay Landing. All shuttles and water taxis are bicycle friendly.
And there’s so much to see on your own (as well as the conference-arranged tours):
