Maps & Directions

Transportation

We have done our best to place artists without cars close to the most frequently used rehearsal spaces, as well as artists with cars near or with those without to make carpooling easier on everyone.

If you have a car, please pitch in and help others get to rehearsals and performances. If you do not have a car and are planning to carpool, please make sure to pitch in gas money.

Alternative transportation options include:

  • Public buses: there are a number of bus routes that run throughout Charlottesville, including a free trolley from UVa grounds to downtown. Please consult the Charlottesville Area Transit website for schedules and pricing.
  • ZipCar: there are several ZipCar locations on UVa grounds if you have a subscription.
  • UBike: a bike sharing service based on UVa grounds
  • Uber: Uber and UberX are now available in Charlottesville

Please check with all other artists attending the same rehearsal if you need a ride. If you have exhausted all resources and cannot secure a ride to rehearsal, please contact the company manager.
