Free transportation to and from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) will be offered between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on August 9, 2022. If you signed up for the shuttle, more information will be provided to you via email.
If you arrive on a different day, or outside of these hours, you will be responsible for finding your transportation to campus. Some suggestions include:
Groome Shuttle: This is the most affordable option for someone traveling to campus on their own, but the bus will not drop you off directly on campus.
- Shuttles will drop you off at Village Cafe DeLand, exit 116, 431 Orange Camp Road, but from there, you will need a taxi or Uber/Lyft to get to campus (you can call a taxi or use Uber or Lyft)
Hire a private car
- Please contact WORLD if you would like recommendations for a private car company
Rent a car from the Orlando airport and drive to campus (must be at least 21 years old and have a valid international driver’s license):
