    • Free shuttle bus service is offered inside the San Diego Zoo. You may also opt for the wheelchair or motorized wheelchair that is offered at a first-come-first-serve basis. I suggest you call on 619-231-1515 to inquire about the rent price. San Diego Zoo also offers the Discovery Cart Tour which is suitable for all age groups.
