1. Re: Transportation to Covenant Harbor Bible Camp,, Lake Geneva.

First, let me see if I understand correctly that you are trying to get from Charlottesville, VA to O'Hare Airport and then by bus to Janesvilles, WI and your final destination is Lake Geneva, WI. That's a roundabout way to get to Lake Geneva, and as far as I know, there is no public transportation to or from anywhere to Lake Geneva.

I have two suggestions:

Cardinal Transport Services. I have not used them recently, so I don't know if they are still running. They had a van service that ran between IL and WI from O'Hare, Midway, Rockford to various places in WI. These were 5 passenger vans...a shared ride. I don't have a web address, but here is the phone 888-245-0675.

A-1 Taxi & Limo in Lake Geneva does local and long distance rides...this might be expensive. Again, no web address, but here is a phone 262-248-2619.

You need to know that Janesville is at least an hour west of Lake Geneva, so by going there you will only have to back track. From O'Hare airport, it is almost a straight drive north to Lake Geneva. So, if you don't have a reason to go to Janesville, I would try one of the above services to get you directly to Lake Geneva.

Hope this helps, and good luck with your travels.

Good point toelle. I did not respond to this post because I frankly did not know how to help.

But, going to Janesville from O"hare is not a good way to get to Lake Geneva. I am amazed at how Greyhound Bus has completely discontinued local bus service in Wisconsin. There really is no public transportation between small cities in Wisconsin.

I suggest you contact the Bible Camp or Lake Geneva Chamber of commerce to get recommendations on transport from O'Hare. There has got to be direct, shared ride transportation because there is no other way for folks to get to and from Lake Geneva without a car.

Ok, I had one other thought, and it may be a long shot, but I thought I would give you the info. The above link is for Geneva Ridge Resort and all the various types of transportation they use for getting guests to the conference center. The reason this may serve your purposes is because the Geneva Ridge Resort is very close...maybe a half mile west on Rt. 50 outside of Lake Geneva...AND within walking distance of Convenant Harbor Bible Camp. Geneva Ridge is on the north side of Rt. 50; the camp's entrance is on the south side.

I also agree with Przyk that you should check with the camp. If they had a large group coming in from O'Hare, they may use some of the exact same transportation that Geneva Ridge uses. If all else fails, contact Geneva Ridge and see if they have a group coming in and hitch a ride there.

Another good option for transportation from OHare is Airport Connection: (414)769-2444 / (800)236-5450 www.goairportconnnection.com. In my experience they usually have the best rates.
