Location and Transportation

Positioned within beautiful Southern California, the Antelope Valley features a desirable location and quiet lifestyle within commuting distance of the fast-paced culture of nearby Los Angeles.

The Antelope Valley’s main cities are Palmdale and Lancaster, with more than a dozen unincorporated towns, including Edwards Air Force Base, which together span more than 3,000 square miles in northern Los Angeles County and southeastern Kern County. Several major thoroughfares wind in and around the region, easily connecting the area with surrounding destinations. State Route 14 is the main route to L.A., about 60 miles southwest, while State Routes 58 and 138 provide a link to Bakersfield and San Bernardino.

The City of Lancaster is a regional multi-modal facility offering the services of the Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA), Metrolink commuter rail, Santa Clarita Transit, Greyhound bus and Amtrak Thruway motorcoach. Metrolink operates out of stations in Lancaster, Palmdale and Vincent Grade in Acton, and AVTA offers a multitude of stops throughout the surrounding region. In addition to local transit services, AVTA offers commuter routes and Dial-A-Ride options.

The region is well-served by several general aviation airports. The closest commercial airports include Bob Hope Airport in Burbank and Los Angeles International (LAX). Conveniently, the Antelope Express provides hassle-free, curb-to-curb shuttle service to LAX seven times a day, every day.

With a quality highway infrastructure, excellent public transit and access to both general and commercial air services, getting around the Antelope Valley is a breeze.
