Disneyland via Ontario Airport plan afoot

Angeles World Airports hope offers of fare rebates, shuttle rides on
area freeways and, perhaps, early admission to the theme park will be
enough incentive for them to choose Ontario International Airport.
a plan that may not be implemented until next summer and aims to shift
air travel to the Inland airport, a consultant to LAWA -- the Los
Angeles city agency that owns and operates Ontario and Los Angeles
International airports -- has proposed linking Ontario to Disneyland
both physically and through promotions with the theme park.
Ducey, who was hired by LAWA more than three months ago to help boost
passenger traffic at Ontario, said the airport could serve as a

Speed Rail Authority, said that a mass-transit center hosting
high-speed trains and buses would help reduce the demand on John Wayne
Airport. Proposition 1A, passed by the electorate on the November
ballot asked voters to determine whether the state should sell $9.95
billion in bonds to begin constructing a bullet-train network
connecting Northern and Southern California. Mayor Pringle and
supporters of the Proposition say high-speed trains would be greener
and would be a less costly way to travel up and down the state. In
addition, it would be cheaper than expanding highways and airports.
gas prices and strict limits on the capacity of John Wayne Airport make
it the ideal time to push hard for alternative methods of
transportation because demand is growing fast, according to Pringle.
believes that some sort of high-speed transit system that carries
passengers east to west and north to south in California could limit

like Ontario quickly and cheaply.
