SVA provides transportation to the Washington D.C., Fredericksburg, VA, Richmond/Norfolk, New York City, and Fayetteville, NC areas on each home leave. The costs are reasonable and are intended to cover operating expenses. There will be an extra charge if tickets are purchased past the deadline, which is the Thursday night before each home leave. No refunds will be issued for bus tickets if not canceled prior to home leave.
Home Leave Changes
Contact Phone during Home Leave: 423-800-4496.
Please call this number during Home Leave should there need to be an alteration of passengers, pick-ups, etc.
Due to limited space and vehicles available it is very important that we are able to plan accurately for our transportation needs.
Other Transportation Needs
For transportation needs other than home leaves, students will be charged. This includes off-campus medical appointments, airport/bus travel, etc.
Students needing transportation must make arrangements at least 48 hours (through Rita Miller) prior to leaving on their trip to aid in the coordination of fleet vehicles and finding a driver. A schedule of transportation dates, times and charges will be provided at the beginning of each school year.
