Transportation

Our Commandant's Department is responsible for coordinating with you regarding your travel plans for major leaves and arranging shuttle and private hire transportation for our major leaves and end of the school year departures.

Travel plans are communicated through our Orah online platform. You may contact us with any travel-related questions by email to transportation@fuma.org.

Fork Union Military Academy offers transportation options for cadets traveling to and from certain airports, Amtrak, and Greyhound stations.

  • We offer shuttle transportation, typically by 15-passenger mini-buses, for our mandatory leaves (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break, and End of the Year Departure).
  • At other times, and to certain other locations, we can offer private hire transportation.

Travel for cadets may require that you make arrangements for an escort to accompany your cadet if he is considered an "unaccompanied minor" based on the policies of your chosen transportation provider. Read more about our Unaccompanied Minors Escort Service below.

Unaccompanied Minors Escort Service

Cadets traveling without their parents by air, train, or bus may be considered "unaccompanied minors" depending on their age and may be required to have an adult escort accompany him to and from the gate of their public transportation. The individual airlines, Amtrak, and Greyhound each have their own policies as to the age at which they require a minor to be escorted by an adult. If your cadet is under the carrier's age limit, please email transportation@fuma.org for more information regarding the cost for this service and to make arrangements for transportation and escort.
