Airport and Out of Town Travel

Traveling beyond Williamsburg? Check out the ways Parking & Transportation Services can help get you where you need to be.

Airport Shuttle Service
Parking & Transportation Services is available to provide shuttle service to and from the Richmond and Newport News airports for published Breaks.

All shuttles depart from the Sadler Center Terrace. Return shuttles pick up curbside at the Arrival Terminal for each airport. The cost per person each way is $25 for Newport News, $30 for Richmond.  Shuttle service is provided using 12 passenger vans or when demand increases a hired charter. We ask that passengers please pack accordingly, presume space is limited.  In the event of flight cancellations or delays we will work diligently to accommodate passengers on other scheduled shuttles or facilitate other ground transportation options. Discretionary cancellations and no-shows after final confirmatory e-mails from the transportation coordinator are provided or within 24 hours of the movement are non-refundable and billable to the traveler rather than the program sponsor.  

Electronic forms to request a shuttle or reserve a seat will be posted below when they become available.

Due to the ongoing I64 expansion and unpredictable highway and tunnel traffic patterns we are no longer able to offer reliable/scheduled service to the Norfolk airport. Upon request we may be able to coordinate trips to the Norfolk airport (minimum of 6 travelers are required) to work in this service. Norfolk pricing depends on the number of travelers per trip (range $35-$50).
