Transportation from Norfolk VA airport to OBX?

Any recommendations for the best way to get to OBX from the Norfolk airport?

How much are taxis or shuttles approximately?

I dont drive so can't rent a car :(

Www.islandlimo.com

Gets good reviews and others have posted saying if you are willing to share a ride, the cost is reduced.

We had this discussion here on on obxconnection.com recently. To Kitty Hawk it costs $155 and up to Corolla a little more, $175 maybe. You really do need a car here though.

While most of us who live and vacation here have cars, it is entirely possible to do without one, as long as you are staying in certain areas. Most of Kill Devil Hills and the northern part of Nags Head have plenty of accommodations that are within walking distance of restaurants, stores and the beach. These days you can even uber over to Roanoke Island for a day trip :)

On my regular walk around the wright brothers memorial ,My friend and I saw a6-8 person plane land on their small airstrip.i was told that they used to fly from Norfolk.The plane was still parked in the same location the next day.Not sure if they have resumed this option,but you can look into it.

As a pilot I can assure you a private plane ride will cost lots more than $100, or even $300. If it had 2 engines double that.
