What's GTFS (Gentral Transit Feed Specification)?

GTFS-realtime provides live alert, vehicle location, and arrival-prediction data in an industry-standard format. GTFS-realtime is best for retrieving data for the whole system at once in a relatively small package, but must be extrapolated using the agency's GTFS data to be meaningful. See Google's GTFS-realtime documentation for more information on the GTFS-realtime format.

News & Events

Bus Service Ends 9:45 p.m. Friday 1/28/22

Due to anticipated adverse weather BT service will end at 9:45 p.m. Friday 1/28/22 in both Blacksburg and Christiansburg. Last bus from campus at 9:15. If road conditions rapidly deteriorate service may be suspended earlier. Please continue to check here often for updates.

BT Mask Supply

Blacksburg Transit, along with all federally funded transit systems in the United States, requires all passengers to wear a mask while on a bus regardless of vaccination status. BT has been providing passengers with disposable masks for their convenience, but due to supply chain issues the next shipment of masks may not be received before the current supply runs out. Passengers should be prepared to provide their own masks or risk being refused entry.

Do not rely on BT for a mask, take one from home before heading to the bus stop.
