Air Ports Convenient to Fullerton, California

For those who will arrive by air, the four nearest air ports are Long Beach (LGB), Orange County (SNA, also known as John Wayne Airport, or Santa Ana), Ontario (ONT, be sure you specify Ontario, CALIFORNIA!), and LAX (Los Angeles International). Long Beach, Orange County, and Ontario are closer than LAX, which is about one hour away by car. Long Beach, Ontario, and Orange County (Santa Ana) airports are all about 30 min. by car.

The best way to get from any of these airports to the hotel, aside from renting a car, is by means of the Super Shuttle service. Be sure to specify that you want to go to the HOTEL near the campus, rather than to the campus itself, because shuttle fares to hotels are lower than fares to universities, even though both are at virtually the same location. Be sure to specify the hotel at Cal State Fullerton, as there are several hotels in Southern California with the same or similar names. Taxis in Southern California are expensive and distances are great, so you are not advised to use taxis, unless you are as rich as Bill Gates, or can share a ride with Bill. It is a good idea with any ground transportation in Southern California to agree on the price before taking the ride.
