Traveling beyond Williamsburg? Check out the ways Parking & Transportation can help get you where you need to be.
Airport Shuttle Service
Parking & Transportation operates van shuttle service to and from nearby airports for scheduled breaks in the academic year. For trips with high passenger counts, we work with our partners Oleta and James River Transportation to organize charter bus service.
Departures & Returns
All airport shuttles depart and return to Sadler Terrace. Pickup locations at Richmond Airport and Newport News Airport will be outlined in your confirmation email. Standard departure and return times are below, however, some trips may differ from the standard times. Check the schedule for trip times for each break. Dates without specified times will follow the standard times.
|8:00am, 11:00am, 3:00pm||1:00pm, 6:00pm, 11:00pm|
Student Assembly will cost share $20 off for a limited number of riders per break, leaving a balance of $30 to the rider. When the limit is reached, riders will be charged the full amount of $50 per shuttle seat. After a reservation is confirmed, payment is required before date of travel.
Shuttles are available for Richmond (RIC) and Newport News (PHF) airports only. Due to the unpredictable highway and tunnel traffic patterns we are no longer able to offer reliable service to the Norfolk airport.
Cancellations & No-shows
Cancellations after final confirmation emails from the transportation coordinator and no-shows are non-refundable and billable to the traveler at the full amount of $50. 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.
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.
