Bus Trip Information & Agenda

The buses will be leaving from the J.C. Penny end of Fashion Square Mall in Charlottesville. There is a small satellite parking area at the south end of the lot where you will be directed to park. Departure is scheduled for 7AM so plan on being there by 6:30. There will be volunteers to check you onto the buses. Each bus will be assigned a letter A through D you will be told what bus you are on, we ask that on the return trip you ride on the same bus. We will maintain rosters on each bus so we do not leave anyone behind. We ask that at least one person in your party have a cell phone, the volunteers will need that number in case we have to get in touch with you at the end of the day. Maps and additional information will be handed out upon boarding the buses.We will return by approximately 9 PM that same evening. The buses have room for storage of back packs and incidentals. You may bring drinks and snacks if you wish.

Because of the number of buses and people attending we will now have to be dropped off at Union Station. Union Station is a short walk to the Capital were the main rally is being held. You can go directly to the Capital or if you choose you can walk or take the metro to Freedom Plaza were the march begins. The walk is about one mile however the Federal Triangle metro stop is only one block from the Plaza which is on Pennsylvania Avenue. The march is scheduled to begin at 11:30 and goes down Pennsylvania Ave to the capital, the 9/12 Group will have volunteers along the route to assist people as needed. The route is just under a mile so wear comfortable walking shoes. For those who may have difficulties walking there are metro stops along the way that will take you to the Capital Building were the march ends and the rally is to take place.

At the end of the day the buses that will be taking us back to Charlottesville will pick us up at Union Station which is about 3 blocks from the Capital Building. You will need to be at the Station by 6 PM and the buses will leave at 6:30. Make sure you check in with one of the volunteers before boarding the return bus, again please board the same bus you arrived on, we do not want to leave anyone behind.
