Irvine Transportation

If you're a Zipcar user, you'll find 7 vehicles at 5 locations on the University of California, Irvine campus, including the eco-friendly Prius and family-friendly Scion, perfect for an afternoon at the beach or a day trip to Disneyland Park®. 

Some people cringe at the thought of getting around in Southern California, but Irvine has transportation figured out!

For starters, getting in and out is a breeze with one of the most flier-friendly airports in the country: John Wayne Airport (SNA). Less than an hour from Los Angeles, the clean, uncrowded Irvine airport offers a great alternative to LAX and serves as a gateway to all of Orange County.

Located right on MacArthur Boulevard, one of Irvine's main roads, there's no "driving into town" when you fly into John Wayne: Irvine is across the street and all around, allowing you to settle into your hotel (or hit the malls) literally within minutes of grabbing your bags. Airport Guides

If you'll have a rental car in Irvine, you'll also be pleased to know that the no-stress experience of the Irvine airport continues on the city's roads. Because Irvine is master-planned, you'll never experience snarled traffic or rush hour delays. Driving here is a pleasure: wide roads, light traffic, clear signals and perfectly tuned traffic control, and our Irvine and Orange County maps will quickly orient you to the area.

For those who prefer not to drive, nearly all Irvine hotels offer free shuttle transportation to shops, restaurants and attractions within a few miles' radius. In a compact city like Irvine, that covers a lot of ground!

Also, the Irvine Shuttle (iShuttle), offers two convenient routes throughout the city, including stops at the aiport, the shops and eateries of Diamond Jamboree, the Irvine Museum, popular restaurants, the Tustin Metrolink Station and Irvine's larger hotels. Fares are just $1 or $.50 for peak and off-peak hours, respectively.

Irvine is also served by busses of the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), and the Irvine Station offers convenient rail service from Amtrak and Metrolink, putting coastal Southern California from San Diego to San Luis Obispo in easy reach.

The Toll Roads

The Toll Roads are the largest toll road network in California, totaling 51 miles and accounting for more than 20 percent of Orange County highways. Developed and operated by Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA), the network is comprised of the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads.

For rates and more information visit www.thetollroads.comMap of toll roads.

Cash tolling is no longer accepted on The Toll Roads, but there are now new ways to pay. Drivers can pay tolls with FasTrak®, an ExpressAccountTM or use One-Time-TollTM. To pay tolls directly online

One-Time-Toll is the ideal choice for out-of-town visitors and infrequent users of The Toll Roads. No account necessary - users drive the 73, 133, 241 or 261 Toll Roads anytime, day or night, then pay within 5 days after driving on The Toll Roads. Drivers can pay online at or by using The Toll Roads app.
