Regatta Shuttle Buses

REGATTA DAY SHUTTLE BUS

Now Departing -- Halley Elementary School

Our shuttle bus now departs from Halley Elementary School at 8850 Cross Chase Cir, Fairfax Station, VA 22039.

Our use of the Halley Elementary School location is a first.  We have used the Silverbrook Elementary School location for over 20 years, but due to construction it is unavailable for the 2019 & 2020 seasons.

The first shuttle departs Halley at 7AM and every 15 minutes afterwards IAW the attached schedule or via our website link:  Shuttle Bus Schedule -- Halley ES.  The bus departs 2.5 hours before the first race to allow crew members plenty of time to reach pre-race meetings.  The last shuttle departs Sandy Run Marina to return to Halley two hours after the last race starts.

We may park in any of the available parking spaces surrounding Halley.  (If we park two vehicles to a bus lane – we will have about 120 available parking spaces.)  We are also permitted to park on Cross Chase Circle – the street on either side of the school.  The speed limit in the neighborhood is 25mph.  Please do not block a driveway, park on a yellow curb or in front of a fire hydrant.  Violations will be ticketed and or towed. 

The bus will pick up passengers at the white X (see attached map or use website link:  Map - Halley Shuttle Bus).  It is across from Door 3 in the bus parking lot. The shuttle will drop you off at Sandy Run Marina’s Parking Lot C Sandy Run Map.  Lot C provides easy access to the boat house and both the trail and the van that provide for access to the Grandstand.  The van costs $3 per trip each way.  

The shuttle departs the marina at Lot C as well.  All Halley Elementary School Shuttle Buses are yellow school buses.

The bus ride from Halley to Sandy Run’s Lot C is about 10 minutes.  Allow for 15-20 minutes to walk from Lot C to the Grandstand, however, the $3 van ride is much quicker.

Very limited parking is available at the marina and what is available fills up very early.  The Virginia Scholastic Rowing Association (VASRA) has parking available at the corner of Van Thompson and Hampton Roads for $20 per car.  Shuttles provide transportation from the VASRA lot to the marina.
