Public transportation to Monticello

We will be staying in a small b&b in downtown Charlottesville for four days in early December. We will be arriving by Amtrak, and renting a car is not possible. How can I get to Monticello (we already booked an evening Christmas tour) from Charlottesville ? If there is no public transport, are taxis an option ? Approx how much would it cost ? Will it be easy to get one babk to town from Monticello? Thanks

Your b&b owners should have the precise info...perhaps even offer a ride?

Here is a recent discussion of same topic.

I don't know that anything has changed. Many of the responders either live in area or visited by car so we don't pay a lot of attention to the public transportation options like folks in DC, NY, or Boston. Best suggestion is to call Monticello or as suggested your host for information so you can plan these things in advance. Then, please post what you find back here so others can have the benefit of your experience.

BTW, you should have a very special time.

Taxis (Access Taxi) are an option or you may want to check out Albemarle Vintage Limousine service and go in style in a vintage car! They also offer wine tours and the area has great vineyards and wineries. http://albemarlevintagelimousine.com/

You'll need to call a cab. Ask your innkeepers for the number.

The cost will be around $20 one way - and it's about 6-7 miles from downtown Charlottesville.

Innkeepers cannot legally offer a ride as they are not insured to do so.

B&Bs cannot legally give you a ride. They don't have insurance to cover it.

Taxi is the only way. About $20 -$25 each way.
