The quickest way to access the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center is by automobile. For directions, use Google Maps or this page. There are a few alternatives
- Shuttle: We recommend Xpress Shuttles for service to Lake Arrowhead. We will arrange at least one shuttle from Ontario Airport to the venue. Participants can reserve space on this shuttle during their registration.
- TNC: the conference center is inside the Uber service area but outside the Lyft service area
- Transit: Mountain Transit’s RIM Off the Mountain offers Monday-Saturday service. A local taxi connection is required.
UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead Conference Center is 99 miles from the main campus, nestled on a lake a mile above the Pacific Ocean on the edge of the LA megaregion. There are a variety of airport options, but we encourage invited speakers to look at the Ontario airport first for the added convenience of easy ground transportation.
We will arrange for shared-ride vans to transport speakers to and from the Ontario airport to the Conference Center. For those flying into other airports who would prefer not to rent a car, we recommend Burbank or LAX, which have transit connections to Metrolink’s commuter rail service.
