International Conference on Geometry and Analysis on Manifolds

Santa Barbara March 14-20, 2008


Santa Barbara has its own municipal airport, served by major airlines United and American. The Santa Barbara airport is close to the UCSB campus and the conference hotel, which also provides complimentary shuttle service from and to the airport.

The Los Angeles International Airport is about two hours drive away.


  • From Santa Barbara Airport:
The conference hotel, the South Coast Inn, provides shuttle service from and to the airport. Simply use the airport courtesy phone to call the Inn for pickup. You can also take a taxi. Cab fare should be about $10.

If you are renting a car at the airport, turn right as you exit the rental car lot, onto William Moffet Lane.

  • From Los Angeles International Airport:
We recommend the Santa Barbara Airbus, particularly if you must return to LAX for your departing flight. The Airbus is reliable, and offers a reasonable round-trip fare of approximately $80. The nearest Airbus drop-off point to the UCSB campus is 5755 Thornwood Drive, in Goleta; so once you arrive, you'll need to call a cab, or the hotel shuttle for delivery to your local destination. If you are driving from LAX, exit the airport lot at Sepulveda Blvd., and follow Sepulveda Blvd. to the 405 North Freeway entrance. Follow 405 North to 101 North (Ventura Freeway). Remain on the 101 (for approximately one and a half hours) into Santa Barbara. If you drive to the campus you may park in designated lots only map of UCSB. The fee charged for parking is $8.00 per day. You can pay by the pay machines around the parking lots.
