By Air

We strongly urge you to fly into the Santa Barbara airport—although it may cost slightly more than flying into LA, the time and hassle saved will be more than worth it.

For those of you who must fly into LAX, there is a shuttle service, Santa Barbara Airbus. The price is $84 roundtrip (online advance purchase) and takes approximately 2 hours in the best of traffic.

By Train

Amtrak terminals are located in Santa Barbara (12–15 miles from UCSB) and Goleta (3 miles from UCSB).
