getting to staunton

by air

Staunton is located near two regional airports, the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport (SHD) and Charlottesville International Airport (CHO).

To get to downtown Staunton from SHD, the airport provides a reservation-based shuttle service. There are also local taxi services as well as some Uber and Lyft drivers who are active in the area.

To get to downtown Staunton from CHO, you can take the train from the Charlottesville Amtrak station (CVS) to the Staunton Amtrak station (STA).

Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Richmond International Airport (RIC) are both further away, but within driving distance of Staunton.

by train

The Northeast Corridor 3 Amtrak line stops at the Staunton Amtrak station (STA), just a couple of blocks away from the Blackfriars Playhouse.

by bus

The Virginia Breeze bus line runs between Union Station in Washington, DC and the Staunton Martin’s Supermarket bus stop (STA).

To get to downtown Staunton from the bus stop, you’ll need to take a taxi or the 250 connector bus.

by car

Interstates 81 and 64 provide easy access to Staunton. U.S. Routes 250 and 11 run basically parallel to the interstates and offer a more scenic drive, with the same ease.
