Other ground transportation service information

NOTE: Ontario is served by all the major US airlines, but Southwest is the dominant server and booking on Southwest is done only via their website. Travel into LAX is usually a less expensive air fare price and has more non-stop flights, but then there are ground transportation delays and costs. You will have to balance these.

Ground transportation from Los Angeles International (LAX) to Claremont:
By shuttle (LAX — Claremont or The Sheraton): Super Shuttle, Prime Time Shuttle and other shuttle services are available from LAX. Booking ahead is possible, as is picking a shuttle curbside. However, they may take consisderable time picking up other passengers and delivering them. They may cost up to $55 one-way.
By bus and train (LAX — Union Station — Claremont): FLYAWAY bus service is available from LAX. This will take you to and from Union Station (downtown Los Angeles) every half hour for about $8. From Union Station, you can use the METROLINK train to bring you right into Claremont (this takes about one hour and costs about $9.25.). Please contact local chairs for a ride from the Metrolink station in Claremont to Harvey Mudd College.
