Transportation

Please refer to our Map and Directions page for complete driving directions and nearby airports.  All nearby airports listed have an array of rental car options. Richmond does not have public train or bus service. Please contact us with any questions.

Parking

For most visits and events, Bethany’s designated parking area is behind (south) of the Bethany Center, adjacent to the Earlham College public safety offices. Enter the Earlham campus and follow signs for the Seminaries to get to this lot. Two handicap-designated spaces and three additional spaces are available at the main entrance to the Bethany Center off National Road.

Additional parking is in the Earlham College lot near the main College entrance. Turn in to the entrance, west of Bethany on National Road, and turn right at the stop sign; the lot will be on the left. It is a three-block walk back to the Seminary along National Road or along the campus drive from there.
