Flying into ONT, getting to Pasadena

I'm flying into ONT and going to 700 West Huntington Drive Monrovia California 91016, Primetime is 50 dollars, supershuttle is 69 estimated. You cannot uber from there, the Train is really expensive for a train and 2.5 hour drive. I was thinking of taking a cab to a local restaurant then taking an uber...I'm sure people do that. Suggestions to make it less expensive?

Did you look at taking Metrolink and transferring to Metro rail? That doesn't look too expensive.

You can take a shuttle to airport hotel and Uber from there. But I don't think it'll be less expensive. What are you going to do once you are there? Will you need a car?

It says that it totals 42 dollars to take the metro. For 2.5 hour ride and a reason that seems way overpriced.

It's looks like we are very close to everything we will be going to for the rose bowl so no we do not want or need a car.

Why not fly into Burbank, LAX or SNA?

Probably because ONT is closest to Monrovia.

It's actually 8 miles to the start of the Rose Parade and 9 miles to the Rose Bowl. You could take public transport (bus + light rail) to Pasadena. But it's not 3 miles.
