Getting to MagLab

From MAGLab
Jump to navigation Jump to search

MagLab is located in the Big Valley Industrial Park in Pomona, CA. The address is on the main website.

By Car

See the main website for the address and pictures of the turn-in off Valley Blvd.

If you're eastbound on Valley Blvd. and miss the first entrance because it sneaked up on 'ya around the curve, don't panic. There are 2nd and 3rd chances into the industrial park a few hundred feet down the road.

Parking

Unreserved parking is located around the concrete island in front of MagLab. There is usually space. Please try to avoid parking in front of of our industrial park neighbors.

Please also prioritize the limited space directly in front of our unit for handicapped or those loading & unloading projects, unless it looks like you're going to be the only one here for a while. This isn't a big deal though.

By Bike

MagLab is within biking distance from CPP, or anywhere else for that matter, as long as you've got time. However, the only access is via Valley Blvd, which sees moderate traffic. Therefore, it is recommended to be comfortable riding alongside cars and navigating unprotected left-turn lanes. The outer lanes are at least comfortably wide.

There is a sidewalk along the north side of Valley Blvd which ends a few hundred feet away from the entrance, so you'll have to be on the road for the last stretch. There is no sidewalk along the south side of Valley Blvd.

Parking

There are no bike racks. Feel free to bring your bike inside.

By Train

The closest Metrolink station is Industry. (3 mi.)

The closest Metro station is APU / Citrus College serviced by the L Line (Gold). (11 to 16 mi.)

Neither of these options are particularly close, but doable if you're comfortable on a bike.

By Bus

Foothill Transit has stops along Temple Ave 0.8 mi (1.35 km) to the East. Covering the remaining distance by bike is recommended over walking.

By Foot

Getting to MagLab by foot is technically possible, but it is a treacherous endeavor because these are no continuous sidewalks to the entrance. You're on your own here. See Google Street view.

By Air

Unfortunately, due to prior incidents, MagLab is not offering aviation services to manned aircraft at this time. However, there are several nearby airports.
