Hotel & Travel Information

Hotel & Travel Information:


The nearest airport is the Ontario International Airport (ONT, 19 miles). Other possible airports are the Orange
County John Wayne Airport (SNA, 44 miles) and the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX, 71 miles).

Transportation to and from an Airport

Shuttle services such as SuperShuttle are widely available between any of the local airports and UCR. Taxis can be taken as well, although they are likely to be more expensive.  If you are willing to drive, you might consider a rental car. In general, public transportation in California (i.e. via bus or train) is inconvenient. Note: Uber is not currently picking up passengers at the Ontario airport.  It can be used for the return trip from UCR.
