William & Mary does not have a preferred transportation partner, but below are several options for travel from local airports or when in town.

Local Cab Companies

Triangle Taxi
(757) 345-5557

Best Taxi
(757) 358-7151

Uber or Lyft

When your flight has landed and you’ve collected your luggage, you can request a ride using the Uber or Lyft mobile app. Either app can be downloaded through the App Store or Google Play.

Once you tap Request, make your way to the ground transportation area marked for Uber and Lyft. This is where your driver will pick you up.

Pro tip: Check that your driver's license plate, photo and name match what's in the app. This is a highly trafficked pickup zone, so you want to be sure you're in the right car!

These services can also be utilized throughout your stay in Williamsburg for local travel. 

Tidewater Coach

For transportation specifically to and from the airports, a local company has put together several package options. Visit http://www.tidewatercoach.com/WM50 for more information.

William & Mary and the Alumni Association assume no responsibility regarding the use of the above services.

For more information and additional maps, visit the Directions to Campus page on the William & Mary website.
