Museum Shuttles

Have you ever wanted to explore the many historic sites and museums that the city of Richmond has to offer?  Now is your chance!  UR Transportation Services will be offering a Museum Crawl on Jan 23rd & Feb 20th.   This FREE shuttle will offer students a unique way to explore several of the historic sites and museums located on the route. 

Stops will include:

  • Stop 1:  VMFA, VA Historical Society
  • Stop 2:  Science Museum of VA
  • Stop 3:  Black History Museum and Cultural Center of VA
  • Stop 4:  Valentine Museum, John Marshall House, White House & Museum of the Confederacy, VA State Capital
  • Stop 5:  Edgar Allen Poe Museum, VA Holocaust Museum
  • Stop 6:  The American Civil War Museum at Historic Tredegar

Shuttles will depart the HUB every 2 hours, between noon – 6pm.  You can pick one site and stay all day, or visit a few! The shuttle will drop off and pick up at each site, every 2 hours.    No reservations are necessary, but seating will be limited to 22 passengers each trip.  Any questions, contact Transportation Services, transportation@richmond.edu

Spring 2016 Updates

Looking to go somewhere with your friends but no car? Sign up for a Zipcar membership for only $15 and be off on your way. The University of Richmond now has five Zipcars. Two are located at W-39 behind Lora Robins and three are located at Tyler Haynes Commons. Now Zipcars are on both sides of campus to make it easier for students to have access to them. Why are you still reading? Go off on an adventure!
