East Ontario is the closest station to Ontario International Airport. Airport passengers can connect to Route 81, which will take them to the consolidated rental car facility on Haven Avenue, where an airport shuttle will deliver them to the terminal. Due to the relatively limited schedule of Route 81, and the walking involved, some passengers may find an easier airport connection via Route 61 at the Downtown Pomona station.
