I fly in and out of all the So Cal airports regularly for work. For a DL trip not worth the extra traffic and distance especially when you factor in extra ground transportation costs.

New Executive Order Regarding COVID Testing for International Travelers and Mask Wearing in Airports: https://www.wdwinfo.com/news-stories/executive-order-addresses-covid-testing-for-international-travelers-masks-on-planes-in-airports/


The Biden administration is vowing tough enforcement of new safety measures it is imposing on travelers to curb the spread of the coronavirus even as some say elements of the plan will be difficult to police.

In an executive order he will issue Thursday, his second day in office, President Joe Biden will require masks be worn in airports, planes, intercity buses and other forms of transportation. The president is also ordering people who arrive in the U.S. from other countries to self-quarantine, which had previously been unenforced guidance.

“We are prepared to make sure we use all relevant authorities to enforce the president’s executive order to ensure across every mode of transportation workers, passengers, commuters are protected,” Pete Buttigieg, the nominee to become secretary of transportation, told lawmakers Thursday during a hearing on his confirmation.

Biden will also codify an action by former President Donald Trump on Jan. 12 to require a negative Covid-19 test before flying to the U.S. from other nations, according to a Biden administration fact sheet. The order will be coupled with one requiring masks on federal properties that was signed by Biden on Wednesday.

The American CDC has published a new order about masks. The order requires people to wear a face mask while using any form of public transportation, including buses, trains, taxis, airplanes, boats, subways or ride-share vehicles while traveling into, within and out of the US. Masks must be worn while waiting, boarding, traveling and disembarking. The coverings need to be at least two or more layers of breathable fabric secured to the head with ties, ear loops or elastic bands, scarves and bandanas do not count.

    Hmmm, I was just visiting the official LAX website - and in terms of now available transportation to DL they mention a transport service that I've not heard of before, - http://www.shuttleone.net/

    I'm not sure if they are affiliated with this site - if they are not, apologies. Their website's front page dates from 2014 but it sounds like they have taken over the ground transportation in the Anaheim area and others nearby.

    Hopefully they can be listed on the first page of this thread if that's OK.

    I looked at the link to web site. Can’t see where they drop off for DL area. I know some shuttles don’t drop off at hotels, just a few bus stops in the area then it’s up to you to walk with luggage to your hotel.
    Luckily I have a friend who picks me up from LAX if she’s joining me for DL. Otherwise I fly into Orange County airport and Uber to hotel.

    Has anyone traveled from SNA to DLR area lately? We usually Uber from the airport, but I am hearing a lot of surge pricing happening.

    Not from SNA to DLR... But last month I went from Irvine (about 5 minutes from SNA) to LAX and had problems getting an UBER and then having surge issues. My flight was quite early and I kept trying for a ride and it kept offering me larger and more expensive options (was solo so uber X was fine). About 2.5-3x the normal cost. Took me about 15 minutes to get one that was about 20 minutes away. Good thing I started trying very early and that the flight was early enough to miss a lot of traffic. It was definitely frustrating.

    I took Lyft from SNA to a hotel on S Harbour across from the DL gate and cost me $27. I don’t know what the usual charge is. It was my first time using SNA and Lyft from it.
    My trip was Aug 2019. And had an AM flight.

    Doing it tomorrow. We're going to try Uber first, but we are completely prepared to take a taxi if it seems that will make more sense.

    We flew down for Easter weekend since that's when our ToD tickets were. On that Friday night, Lyft said "no cars available", and Uber kept offering me rides of $40-$70 which I declined, after a few minutes one popped up for $27 which I took. In retrospect would have been better to take a cab. Pre-pandemic when I did that run it was usually about $15 on either Lyft or Uber. On the way back I got a ride for $21 (Sun morning), so I think that's the new price with all the various surcharges during slow times. I read on one of these threads a cab is $28, so just check the app to see what price they are offering.

    I am seeing that Yellow Cab is a flat rate of $44, which is crazy because it is just a tiny bit more from Long Beach which is farther away.

    We started with $27 that was almost immediately cancelled. Then we got $30, and she actually showed up. Got lost, but eventually made it to us. Some other women were waiting for a $22 ride - theirs never did show up.

    Thanks for reporting back. I do not like this practice that they seem to be doing, so frustrating!
