By Amtrak Train

It couldn't be easier! There is an Amtrak station in Ashland, immediately adjacent to the campus. Just give Amtrak a call for schedule information.

By Airplane

The closest major airport to R-MC is Richmond International Airport, which is served by most major airlines. It is located thirty minutes from campus. Randolph-Macon College will provide a free shuttle service from the Richmond Airport (RIC) to the Hampton Inn in Ashland on Friday the 12th from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 PM. There will be an R-MC representative with an ISA/South sign at the bottom of the escalator at the entrance to the baggage claim area at RIC to provide information and help coordinate shuttles. If you are arriving by plane at RIC on Friday, October 12th, to take advantage of the free Shuttle, it would be helpful if you could e-mail tbadey@rmc.edu with your approximate arrival time. There will be a sign-up sheet at the conference registration desk for the return trip to the Airport on Sunday the 14th.

Transportation to and from the Airport to the hotel is also available through commercial carriers.
