The small Santa Barbara Airport is served by the following
There is no UCSB shuttle from the SB airport to the campus
housing (Santa Ynez Apartments).
>> Driving from LAX
The drive is approximately 2 hours from LAX to Santa Barbara
>> Directions to Santa Ynez Apartments

>> Transportation recommendation --
from Santa Barbara Airport to the Santa Ynez Apartments
(6650 El Colegio Road, Goleta, California 93117) [Map]:
This is a very short ride from the airport to the apartments,
and we recommend the SuperRide shuttle (683-9636) -- no advance
reservations necessary -- very convenient and less expensive
than taxis (usually large white van, big blue lettering on
sides and top "SuperRide"). There is usually a shuttle
waiting at the airport for deplaning passengers, so you may
not need to call for service. If not, use the courtesy phone
in the baggage claim area to call. Also, it's convenient and
much less expensive if you schedule a round-trip. Bottom line:
SuperRide is a better deal! (If SuperRide is unavailable,
we recommend Blue Dolphin Taxi.)
Unless you state otherwise on your Information Request Form,
we assume that each of you will accept our offer to stay in
the UCSB-owned Santa Ynez Apartments, near the campus and
within walking distance. The cost of the six-night stay (Sunday-Friday)
is extremely reasonable at $287 per person. This amount will
be deducted from your $500 CSISS scholarship, and the balance
check ($213) will be remitted to you on-site at the close
of the workshop. (Note: For non-U.S. citizens who do not have
a Social Security number or an ITIN, the balance will be processed
for you via a Travel Expense Voucher to be detailed later.)

>> Things to consider bringing:
- cell phone and/or calling card – Apartments do not
have active phone lines or internet access.

Ynez Apartments will be deducted from your $500 scholarship
