There is a bus that’s an express line - goes SJ to Santa Cruz over HWY 17; however, if you rent a car, you could tool around to some of the others towns and beaches (Capitola, Aptos). There is a bike sharing program that’s brand new (Jump Bikes), so if you’re carless, you can cruz around a little on those. Some are regular bikes, some are e-bikes. Hope this helps!
