We make every attempt to have shuttles that leave early enough for you to make the first flight out of Lynchburg and the early and late trains. We have limited trips to town so you may have to wait before your plane or train leaves. You always have the option of asking a friend for a ride, or contacting Cora Tabb at Tabb’s Taxi for a ride. They can be reached at (434) 944-3437 or tabbcab@comcast.net. We also offer shuttles for your return to campus — see dates above.
