Ontario, CA Airport (ONT)
We recommend flying into this airport as it is only 10 miles from the Claremont Colleges. Ontario Airport website linked here.
Taxi service is available from Ontario Airport to the campus; taxi stands are outside each terminal, just east of the baggage claim area (~$35-45). Both Uber and Lyft are available as well (~$15-18) from the Ontario Airport to campus.
Super Shuttle is another alternative. Cost for a shared van could be as low as $21 (from Ontario), but it might take longer depending on the number of other drop-offs.
If you plan to share a ride with other participants, please check which terminal you are arriving in/departing from. There are two terminals, T2 and T4.
Los Angeles Airport (LAX) and John Wayne (SNA) are also options. Super Shuttle is also available from LAX.
