HOW TO GET TO THE RICHMOND REGION
By plane, train, automobile, or great big bus
The Richmond Region is easy to get to, with flights from all over landing at Richmond International Airport. RIR is served by all the major airlines, including low-cost carriers, and there are direct flights here from dozens of cities. The Richmond Region is also within half a day’s drive of half the population of the United States. Since we’re at the crossroads of I-95 and I-64, we’re pretty much on the way to anywhere east and west. (Hint: if you’re going on a long trip up or down 95, we’re the ideal stop and hang out point.)
Express buses can get you here for crazy low prices. We also have a big Greyhound station, and three Amtrak stations, with trains dropping off at Ashland, Staples Mill and the newly restored Main Street Station. All aboard, folks.
It’s easy to get from one end of the Richmond Region to the other when you’re driving. From Pocahontas State Park and the Metro Richmond Zoo in Chesterfield, to premier shopping at Short Pump Town Center and Stony Point Fashion Park, and up to Kings Dominion or Ashland Train Station, it’s a breeze to drive around this entire area. The parking is plentiful and major highways like I-95, north and south, and I-64, east and west, connect the region from one end to the other and to points beyond.
Richmond International Airport welcomes more than 3 million travelers a year, with direct service from major cities and connections from around the globe. This well designed airport is just minutes from Richmond’s downtown, and bypasses and highways can zip you to anywhere in the region.
BY TRAIN OR BUS
Amtrak serves the Richmond Region with three stations: Staples Mill Road in the West End, the historic Main Street Station in downtown Richmond, and the Amtrak station in the charming railroad town of Ashland. Greyhound buses arrive to the center of Richmond, and several express bus companies serve the area with super-low fares.
