Travel and Housing
From the Airport:
We recommend flying into Ontario Airport which is only 10 miles from the Claremont Colleges. LAX and John Wayne (SNA) are also options. Taxi service is available from Ontario Airport to the campus; taxi stands are outside each terminal, just east of the baggage claim area (approximate taxi fare: $35-40.) Super Shuttle is another alternative; it is available from Ontario and Los Angeles Airports. 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.
