VERY IMPORTANT FOR GROUP RESERVATIONS
When a group of passengers are going together in one shuttle van, you must ALL be present and ready to board when giving your confirmation number to curb coordinator. When the van comes to the curb to pick up passengers, the driver cannot wait at the curb for anyone. It is Airport Policy that the driver cannot be parked at the curb. If there is a situation where a passenger is accidentally left behind, he will have to pay again for his ride, so it is up to you to make sure that you coordinate this group so that this does not happen to anyone.
(Before winter and summer breaks, depending on the availability of drivers, Mudd may run shuttles to the Ontario Airport.)
This airport is about a 20-minute drive from campus.
LAX averages one hour or more drive time (depending on time of the day).
The internet is your best resource for finding information sites for airline travel.
