We've come a long way since Thomas Jefferson would waltz into Charlottesville on a horse-drawn carriage after one of his various nation-founding "business trips" to Philadelphia.  Were he alive today, he probably would have jumped on a direct flight from Philly to the Charlottesville-Albemarle Regional Airport and then taken one of the numerous airport taxis up to Monticello.  Or perhaps he would have hopped on the less-than-five-hour AmTrak train that connects the two cities.  Needless to say, we've added a few more transportation options since the 1700s.  

With 723 square miles of the Charlottesville-Albemarle region to explore, limousines, taxis and buses are just a phone call away and are ready to whisk you to the most fulfilling experiences in the area.  The City of Charlottesville's newly revamped and modern bus service, Charlottesville Area Transit,  provides visitors with an inexpensive way to jump from hotspot to hotspot.  If you feel like being behind the wheel, call one of our eleven car rental businesses.  

Whether your preference is wheel or wing, Charlottesville has an abundance of transportation options that get you where you need to be.  Let's hope Thomas Jefferson isn't too jealous.
