Travel to UC Santa Barbara: By air, we highly recommend that you fly in and out of SBA, as it is a much smaller airport and things like security take much less time. If you choose to fly into LAX, you can take a shuttle from the airport to downtown Santa Barbara that is relatively inexpensive. The company that runs it does a really great job. Information on times and fares can be found here: http://www.sbairbus.com/pages/display/laxshuttle.
