Important transportation information

for those flying to the reunion!

Millville, NJ is located approx. 45 miles from Phila. PA, Atlantic City, NJ and Wilmington, DE commercial airports. There are no known scheduled public or other shuttle services to/from Millville. This means that transportation to/from Millville will have to be found by individuals. The Inn doesn't have courtesy transportation to/from these airports.

Taxi and/or Limo service is always available at airports, however, it may be a bit expensive to/from Millville. Discussions were had with the AirField Museum, the Inn and Enterprise Rental Agency personnel of Millville to find economical transportation options.

At this point in time, it appears that the most economical way to/from Millville would be to share the cost of a car rental or taxi from the airport with someone else. If any one finds a less expensive way, please notify Bill Geise or Bob Colangelo so that we can pass it on.

Certainly, since not being travel experts, it is recommended that flying travelers check with their travel agency for transportation options to/from Millville!
