Government type of Ontario: City Council / City Manager
Just 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, the City of Ontario is ideally situated as Southern California’s gateway. With three major interstates, two railroads and the Ontario International Airport, the City of Ontario offers direct access from Los Angeles to the rest of California, and to North America.
Ontario boasts all the amenities of Los Angeles without the expense, hassle and traffic – which is why Ontario is a City where companies want to do business and a community where their employees want to live, work and play.
With 167,000 residents, Ontario is San Bernardino County’s fourth-largest city – and growing. Ontario’s population is set to double in the next 25 years, and local leaders have their sights set firmly on the future.
Ontario already has a vast business infrastructure in place, but City officials and community leaders continually work to improve the City’s pro-business environment.
Ontario delivers a highly skilled workforce, reasonable lease rates, quality office and retail development, and more than 100 million square feet of industrial manufacturing and distribution space.
The Ontario International Airport is just minutes from downtown and is the 15th busiest airport in the nation measured by air cargo. Major airlines such as American, Delta, United and Southwest offer daily passenger service through the airport, and plans are in place to add a third terminal as traffic continues to increase.
The City also handles the mass of freight transport – via both rail and road – from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to the rest of America. Three major interstates crisscross the City and the surrounding area: I-15 from San Diego to Las Vegas and beyond; I-10 from Los Angeles to Phoenix; as well as State Route 60 for easy regional access.
Every day, companies in the retail, technology, manufacturing and distribution sectors choose Ontario as their base of operations. Mag Instruments Inc., Toyota North America, Cardinal Health, Nordstrom, AEG and Uline are just a few of the many companies that have chosen to invest here.
