Location and Transportation

Ontario is located in eastern Oregon, near the Idaho-Oregon border. The largest city in Malheur County, Ontario continues to grow in large part because of its easily accessible location.

Ontario is conveniently located at the center of four major highways: Interstate 84, U.S. Highway 95, U.S. Highway 20-26 and U.S. Highway 201. Follow Interstate 84 to the southeast for about an hour and discover Boise. To the northwest, a drive of approximately six hours along Interstate 84 will take travelers to Portland. The highways provide access to Nevada and California to the south, Idaho to the east, Washington to the north and Oregon’s coast to the west.

Ontario Municipal Airport provides a 5,000-foot runway to accommodate light general aviation aircraft to business jet aircraft. A fixed base operator is on the field with aircraft fuel and there is also an aircraft maintenance business. Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field Airport, a major commercial airport, is a quick hour drive to the southeast. Greyhound provides local bus services. Additionally, the area is served by the Union Pacific Railroad, which passes right through town with a stop in nearby Nyssa.
