Getting Home for the Holidays


The holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to go home and spend time with family. For out-of-state students who are flying home, finding a ride to the Memphis International Airport can be difficult. Either their friends cannot drive them, or they are reluctant to ask for such a favor. Luckily, there are multiple services that will transport students from Oxford to the airport in Memphis. These shuttles will pick the students up at their houses, apartments, or dorms and drop them off in front of their airline entrance. Here are just a few of the many different businesses that will take students from Oxford to Memphis.

Rides can be booked through the Uber and Lyft apps on iPhone or Android. This price can be split between 2-6 people if your child can coordinate his or ride to the airport with friends!
