By Train / Bus, San Jose: 15 reviews and 11 photos

Good luck getting around San Jose without a rental car. This is a very public transportation unfriendly town.
Few cabs, bus schedules are inconsistant and take you through some sketchy areas and the newer metro lines just don't service the entire area yet.
It is like San Jose planned out a bad idea and ran out of money halfway through.
Rent a car, your best way around town. Parking is ok downtown, especially in evenings and weekends - most parking structures are free to get people to come downtown.
