Getting to Blacksburg

This page serves as a coordination point for people going to Blacksburg, VA for FUDCon. Coordinating ridesharing, either to the area itself, or simply planning a shared ride with someone from the airport, happens here.

Please note: The airport shuttle from Virginia Tech does not operate on Sundays. The FUDCon organizers are planning on renting vehicles to transport attendees to the airport this day.
