A variety of ground transportation options are available at John Wayne Airport (JWA) conveniently connecting the Airport to surrounding hotels, tourist attractions, businesses and residences.
Most ground transportation services pick up travelers in the Ground Transportation Center (GTC), located on the Arrival (lower) Level in the central area between the A2 and B2 Parking Structures. Within easy walking distance from all baggage claim areas, it can be reached from
the Thomas F. Riley Terminal by crossing the Airport roadway at the traffic light near the John Wayne Statue. Car rental pick-up and return is located on the Ground Level of the GTC.
Passengers arriving in Terminal C can catch the Main Street Parking Shuttle, iShuttle, or a Yellow Cab at Column 14. The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA)
bus stop is located on the Terminal side near Column 9. Transportation network companies (rideshare services), holding an Airport permit, are allowed to pick up curbside. They are available by reservation only.
Travelers are advised to familiarize themselves with California Driving Law, e.g. child safety seat laws, before using ground transportation services.
