Pasadena is located at the north end of the 110 highway in Los Angeles County. The closest airport is Bob Hope (Burbank) airport.
From LAX, Bob Hope (Burbank) airport, or Ontario airport, shuttle door-to-door service is available from a multitude of companies. Caltech has special rates with SuperShuttle (mention the code L3F94 and present a Caltech ID for a 10% discount), but other companies are quite similar. To get a shuttle, exit the baggage claim area and look for the ORANGE overhead "SHARED RIDE VANS" sign. Tell the driver you are going to Caltech; if you are asked for an address or intersection, Holliston Ave. and Del Mar Blvd. is near the southeast corner of campus (see the campus map for other streets). FYI, the campus SuperShuttle stops (for when you order your ride back to the airport) are:
Flyaway bus connects (~$7 one-way) the airport to Union Station (the main train station of LA) so you can catch the Gold Line Metro Rail train to Pasadena (~$1.25 one-way). The Los Angeles County Public Metro Transit System Map includes all buses and trains in the county. The Gold Line going to Pasadena is linked to the Blue, Green and Red lines which cover most of Los Angeles. The Lake St. station is a 10-15 minute walk from campus.
