Home Ride at the University of Virginia
Providing a safe, convenient, economical way to get home.


Our safe, comfortable charter buses offer convenient service between the Student Activities Building on the UVA campus and Northern Virginia, Richmond and Hampton. Our professional drivers let you sleep, study, or just relax without worrying about who is at the wheel.


Home Ride is a bus service designed for college students, so our schedule fits your needs. Generally, we leave Charlottesville on Friday afternoons and return Sunday nights. We also make special runs for Fall break, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring break to fit the university calendar.

All trips start from and return to the Student Activities Building near Scott Stadium at the University of Virginia. Our stop in Northern Virginia is at Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax county. In Richmond, we stop at the James Cabell Library at VCU; in Hampton, near the Outback Steakhouse at Peninsula Town Center Mall.

Going north, we leave UVA at 3:00 PM on Fridays and arrive in Fairfax at 5:00 PM. We also have buses leaving at 5:00 PM and reaching Fairfax at 7:00 PM on some of the busier departure dates, such as Fall break, Thanksgiving, and Spring break. The return trip leaves Fairfax at 5:30 PM Sunday and arrives back at UVA at 7:30 PM.

Going east, we leave UVA at 4:30 PM most Fridays and reach Richmond at 6:00 PM, and Hampton at 7:30 PM. The return trip leaves Hampton on Sunday at 4:30 PM and Richmond at 6:00 PM, and arrives back at UVA at 7:30 PM.


Our fare is just $82 round-trip or $48 one-way to Northern Virginia, $72/$42 to Richmond, and $93/$55 to Hampton. We also offer discount packages to people interested in buying several tickets at once.
