How to get to Richmond, Va
Travelers, choose your vehicle
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 like Jet Blue and Southwest. It’s 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.)
Megabus will get you here for crazy low prices. We 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 behind the wheel. 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 and park in Richmond VA. The parking is plentiful and major highways like I-95, north and south, and I-64, east and west, connect the Richmond region from one end to the other and to points beyond!
By Train, By Bus
Amtrak runs to Richmond with three stations for ease of use in the region at Staples Mill Road, historic Main Street Station and in the town of Ashland. Greyhound buses are available and Megabus drops off across from Main Street Station from points north and south.
