Just two hours South of Washington, D.C. and with a regional airport, Amtrak rail service and Greyhound bus lines, travel to Charlottesville and Albemarle County is a snap.
I-64 and U.S. Route 29 connect in the heart of Albemarle County, and by car, Charlottesville’s footprint is defined by a stretch of I-64 to the south and, to the north, by the upper bypass arcs of U.S. Routes 250 and 29.
Emmet Street (also US Rt. 29) serves as a major north/south path through the heart of city, roughly bisected by a corridor that begins as Ivy Road west of Emmet and becomes University Avenue east of Emmet, leading to West Main/Downtown.
The Charlottesville Albemarle airport (CHO), just eight miles from downtown, offers 50 daily non-stop flights to and from Charlotte, Philadelphia, New York, Washington D.C., and Atlanta. As of, June 9, American will also provide direct service with Chicago O’Hare.
Visitors can also fly into Dulles International Airport (IAD) outside Washington, D.C., just over two hours away whether by car, bus or one of the shuttle services serving Albemarle County. Both airports are accessed via Route 29.
The area is also easy to reach by bus or rail, with Amtrak (CVS station) offering daily direct routes (Crescent, Cardinal and Northeast Regional) to New York City’s Penn Station and Union Station in Washington, D.C.
The Amtrak and Greyhound stations are both conveniently located along the free trolley route across from the West Main shopping and dining district between the Downtown Mall and the University of Virginia. The Starlight Express downtown also offers daily bus travel between Charlottesville and NYC. http://www.visitcharlottesville.org/visitors/getting-around/
