Transport from RDU to Chapel Hill

My daughter and I will be attending an envent a UNC Chapel Hill. I have made reservations at the Sheraton Chapel Hill. I understand the Shearton has a shuttle to and from town, which is very convenient for us. However, does anyone know if they have a shuttle from the aiport? If not, can someone recommend a reasonable transport service. We will be arriving around 9:00 p.m. I prefer not to rent a car as we won't be there too long.

My daughter is a junior at Carolina; my husband a proud alum.....I hope you all enjoy your trip to "Blue Heaven". It is a special place.

We've had out-of -state alum. friends stay at the Sheraton and I believe they've used the hotel's airport transport... starwoodhotels.com/sheraton/…

Also, since my daughter is an in-state student we don't have the airport transport issues, however I've heard her talk about friends getting to/from the airport on area shuttles. I don't know any details, but here's a webpage with info. which might be useful.. oisss.unc.edu/resources/transportation.html

--The airport transport info. is close to the bottom of the page.

Best Wishes!

Thank you for the info. We can't wait to see the campus. I heard it is beautiful.

I am not sure if the hotel offers a shuttle or they are referring us to a shuttle service, which from the website it looks like a limo service.

You might want to try Super Shuttle. It would cost the two of you about $25 combined to take it from RDU to Chapel Hill.

The hotel recommends Elite Coach for travel from the airport.

I checked the shuttle and it is actually $30 per ride for two people. Not too bad but I wonder if anyone knows if the taxi fares are comparable.
