Getting to The Monroe Institute

BY FLIGHT

If flying, you need to fly into the Charlottesville-Albemarle airport (airport code CHO) located several miles north of Charlottesville VA. The airlines currently serving Charlottesville are Delta, United and U.S. Air. Please wait in the baggage claim area and our driver will find you. Due to incoming participant schedules, your waiting time at the airport may be up to an hour.

The Monroe Institute® provides local shuttle transportation from and to Charlottesville on the first and last days of the program. It is an approximate 50-minute drive from the airport to The Institute. (Commercial taxis charge as much as $125 or more for this trip.) Shuttle service includes the airport, bus and train stations as well as local hotels. On the first day of the program the shuttle picks up between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm Arrangements can be made if arrival in Charlottesville is later than 5:00 pm. On the last day of the program the shuttle to Charlottesville runs from 3:30 am to Noon. Be sure to consider this when you are making your flight departure plans. You will have to wait in the airport if your flight is after 1:00 pm.

Participants often arrive a day or two early to recover from jet lag, to enjoy the solitude, and wind down. Likewise, some program participants find it valuable to stay after a program to extend their experience. We have provided accommodation information on Charlottesville hotels on Plan Your Visit page. If your program is in September, October or November, book a hotel as soon as possible. It is football season at the University of Virginia.
