Local Airports and Shuttles


We recommend the following airport for students:

Los Angeles (LAX) is the largest international airport but is up to 2 hours’ drive from campus. Other smaller airport choices are PSP in Palm Springs (about 1-hour drive) SNA in Orange County (up to 1.5 hours’ drive), BUR in Burbank (up to 1.5 hours’ drive), and LGB in Long Beach (up to 2 hours’ drive). Of all airport choices, ONT is the best one for CSUSB students.

Airport Shuttles

Students are responsible for their travel to campus. Here are three of many options:

  • Lyft or other ride-sharing companies (you need to download a smartphone app and add credit card information): approximately $35-$42 USD for a personal ride, one way.
  • Xpress Shuttles or other airport shuttle companies (you need to book a ride on their websites):
    • $66 USD for a one-way shuttle from Ontario (ONT) airport (with discount; originally $79).
    • $158 USD for a one-way shuttle from LAX airport (with discount; originally $214).
If you are ordering with Xpress Shuttles, tell them you are a student at CSU San Bernardino to get the 15% discount. This shuttle picks you up at the curb near your baggage claim, rather than at a separate parking lot.
