New Students

By Plane

We recommend flying into Ontario International Airport (ONT), which is less crowded than Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and closer to campus. Ontario is served by most major airlines and all major car rental agencies. A cab ride to Claremont takes 20 minutes and costs approximately $25.

If flying into LAX, you may take a commuter flight to Ontario, rent a car, or take a shuttle van to Claremont. Allow 90 to 120 minutes driving time during peak times. (Visit our SuperShuttle Discount link for a 15% discount, or enter the discount code FPCS2 manually.)

There are also three other airports within a 45-mile radius of Claremont: Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, John Wayne Airport in Orange County (Santa Ana) and Long Beach Airport.

By Rail

The Los Angeles area Metrolink serves the city of Claremont with a station two blocks from the campus. Take the San Bernardino line east from Downtown Los Angeles, or west from San Bernardino. Once at the Claremont Metrolink station, walk east to College Avenue and then north to access the campus.
