The community is easily accessible via the Pomona Freeway (State Route 60), which runs just south of the community. The ZIP code serving the community is 91744. Most addresses do not use South San Jose Hills as the city but rather La Puente, West Covina, or Valinda, depending on the location of the residence or business. Parts of the area are nicknamed Happy Homes, based on the former name of the development and on the street gang that later took that name.
