Car Service or To or Parking Situation @ Richmond (RVR) Amtrak

by NewToCentralVA Online Now Sep 16, 2012 at 9:43 AM

I am taking Amtrak from RVR on a Tuesday mid-morning. The parking seems rather limited there. Is that a correct assumption? I feel like I should just call a car service and forget about it. Any suggestions?

    According to the Amtrak page for the station (amtrak.com/servlet/ContentSe..., there are 288 long-term spaces. These spaces are rarely secured and there is a cost to park at this particular one. I doubt a round-trip taxi would be cheaper than the total parking cost for your trip, but it depends on how okay you are with the car being out in a lot for however long you're gone. I know some people are weird about their cars.
