Lift to C’ville
The Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission has relaunched the Foothills Express Shuttle Service, providing a handicapped accessible shuttle bus that connects Culpeper and Madison to destinations in Charlottesville. The shuttle enables citizens to access UVA, Martha Jefferson and other medical specialists and treatments not available locally.
The Express will be expanding to three round trips per day three days per week — making it available every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Fares will be $3 each way with a discounted rate of $2 each way for those 65 and over or disabled. There is no charge for children or medical escorts.
Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance
by calling 540-825-2456 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The Foothills Express shuttle bus stops are located at the Emergency Entrance at Culpeper/ UVA hospital and at the Madison Food Lion. The Culpeper/UVA hospital bus stop can be accessed by both the Orange-Culpeper Connector and the Culpeper Trolley.
While the primary focus is for medical transportation, the service is available to all citizens.
