  • 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.  
  • Once the request form closes our transportation coordinators review the schedule, make necessary adjustments, and send out final e-mail confirmations with payment & special instructions. 
Cancellations
  • 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.

Upon request we may be able to coordinate trips to the Norfolk airport (minimum of 6 travelers are required) to work in this service.
