Airport Shuttle Service

Parking & Transportation is available to provide shuttle service to and from the Richmond and Newport News airports for published breaks.

  • Outbound shuttles depart from the Sadler Center Terrace.
  • Return shuttles pick up curbside at the Arrival Terminal for each airport.
  • The cost per trip each way is $36 for Newport News or Richmond. 
  • Shuttle service is provided using 12-passenger vans or, when demand increases, a hired charter. We ask that passengers please pack lightly; 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.
  • 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 are posted below when they become available.  If you need to exit the form before it's complete, your progress will be saved, however, incomplete forms will be automatically deleted after one week.  If this happens, the form will have to be started again from the beginning.  When the survey closes at the time listed, incomplete forms will not be honored.

Upon request we may be able to coordinate trips to the Norfolk airport, a minimum of 6 travelers are required to work in this service. Norfolk pricing depends on the number of travelers per trip (range $35-$50).
