Van or bus from Richmond tairport o Charlottesville airport

by B.G.KAP

Is there a reservation powered van or bus service for those flying to Richmond but needing to get to Charlottesville, VA.

Re: Van or bus from Richmond tairport o Charlottesville airport

by mccalpin

From the airport to Charlottesville? I highly doubt it. The trip is 70+ miles.

First, when you look at the airport's website for ground transportation (http://www.flyrichmond.com/Load.php?Content=Public_Transit), you'll see the number one thing is rental cars. In the US, we assume that most travelers rent cars, because our public transit just doesn't go everywhere (certainly not conveniently).

Greyhound runs three buses a day from Richmond to Charlottesville (06:45, 13:20, 21:15). The Richmond station is at
RICHMOND GREYHOUND STA
2910 N BLVD
Richmond, VA 23230
which is a mile or 2 northwest of downtown (the airport is a similar distance in the opposite direction). So you would have to take the local bus from the airport to the Greyhound station, then take the Greyhound bus to Charlottesville...and hope that the connections were OK timewise...

Of course, there are limo services for a hefty fee - see one of them at http://www.cmclimo.com/ratesandservices.html

I suppose you could try Super Shuttle, but don't hold your breath on the cost (or even availability)

I live in Richmond, but out of town at the moment. The greyhound bus station is at least ten miles in the direction of Charlottesville from the airport. There is no shuttle that I know of and C-ville is fifty miles away. Best bet is get a flat rate from Groome Transportation that drives door to door at a reasonable rate. <i live in the city of Richmond and had to take a cab one day and it was 45USD (15miles) towards C-ville on a meter cab. That is almost one third the way there, so <I would supect it to be about 125USD or more to your destination. Good Luck Tommy x

Travel Tips for Richmond

Old City Hall

by ATXtraveler

Although I did not get the chance to go inside the building, one of the most prominent Gothic style architectures in town is the Old City Hall. Located on 1001 Broad Street, it is a very central figure in the Richmond downtown, with close proximity to the Capitol building. There is not much to the tour, as you can only go on the first floor during normal business hours, however most of the view is located on the outside. One of the unique attributes of this building was that there was a 400 percent cost overrun to construct and maintain this building. That just does not make good economic sense.

Jackson Ward

by b1bob

Known as the Harlem of the South, Jackson Ward is known for its strong black heritage and culture. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, allowing for generous tax credits for people willing to renovate decaying homes. Maggie Walker, the first woman bank president, has a home in the neighbourhood. Architecturally the neighbourhood is highlighted with a mix of Victorian, Italianate, Greek Revival and Romanesque style homes. The neighbourhood also has over half of Richmond's antebellum buildings. Wrought iron porches are some of the finest in the nation. Continuing efforts are now under way to help preserve and restore one of Richmond's most historic neighbourhoods.

en español, em português, en français As Christian and I walked through the neighbourhood on a self-guided tour, we met some friendly people. On the front porch of the house (third picture) an elderly lady helped us find the Bill "Bojangles" Robinson statue. A little further down the road, another resident helped us find the Fire and Police Museum. As an added bonus, we found an old dairy that has now been converted into flats that still have the old dairy's giant milk bottle logo.

Cloverleaf Mall

by b1bob

In its heyday (from the 1970s through to the late 1990s), there were 78 stores including 3 anchor department stores, a movie house, and a whole bunch of specialty and clothing stores. The downfall happened because the quality of the surrounding neighbourhood declined. The movie house is closed and the anchor stores all gave way to the more upmarket Chesterfield Towne Centre down the road. In its latter years, it was reduced to an African art store, a few shoe stores, clothing stores and its food court has just one restaurant. I never really liked shopping per se, but Cloverleaf Mall had quite a variety of stores before the aforesaid decline (I used to like to have an orange freeze at Orange Bowl), it wasn't too upmarket, and rather user friendly (one storey).

State Fair of Virginia

by b1bob

In late September through to early October, the State Fair is held on Strawberry Hill on the Richmond International Raceway Complex. That will soon change, as the State Fair's lease for there will expire round about 2007 and it is not known for sure where they will set up next. The most likely spot is in rural Caroline County, well to the north of Richmond touching suburban Hanover County. There are plenty of agricultural exhibits, rides, and typical carnival foods (corn dogs- weiners on a stick surrounded by cornbread, funnel cakes, and candy apples). I'm not normally keen on the rides, games, and food at the fair because the rides are put up and taken down regularly, the operators seem dodgy, and the food is not what I would call the best. However, I was there in 2005 to help my favourite candidate together with friends. Adam wanted to get some sweet kettle corn after the event was over.

Richmond Coliseum

by b1bob

The Richmond Coliseum is a place to go and take in a basketball game or even an arena football game. My first experience with the Coliseum was when the Ringling Brothers Circus would perform here. In the 1980s, the international food festival moved here after the Richmond Arena closed. Besides sporting events, the Coliseum has been the host of various food festivals and even a statewide political convention or two.
