If you are paying a cash fare and need to take more than one bus to get to your final destination, ask the operator of the first bus for a transfer slip. Let the operator know which bus/route you are transferring to so, if needed, the operator can call ahead to hold your next bus. A transfer is valid for one hour from the time it is made and may not be used for making roundtrips. Transfers are valid on all routes in Blacksburg and Christiansburg, including transferring between the two towns.
