Blacksburg Transit operates four routes within the Town of Christiansburg, The Explorer, Go Anywhere, Commuter and the Two Town Trolley. Descriptions of each follow below.

The Explorer

The Explorer route covers many of the residential areas and the businesses in Christiansburg and the shopping district near the NRV Mall. With two alternating loops and the ability to request deviations, riders can travel to a wide range of popular locations within the town. Please visit the Hours of Operation page for hours of service.

Tips for reading the schedule:

  • Stops are listed in the order served, however not all are listed.
  • Stop times are estimated; please arrive at least five minutes before the posted departure time.
  • A yellow triangle represents a time check, a location where the bus does not leave before the designated time.
  • Several areas, especially along Roanoke Street, have stops along both sides of the street. Each side of the street is served on alternating hours.

Deviation stops

  • The Explorer may deviate off the route to drop off or pick up passengers as long as the deviation meets certain criteria.
  • Passengers may request a deviation stop in two ways:
    • After boarding - ask the operator to request approval for a deviation stop.
    • Before boarding, e.g. when the location begins off the route - call BT two hours in advance of the desired pickup time, and request a deviation stop.

Requests are considered on a first come, first served basis, and will be approved if: (1) the requested stop is an approved location, (2) the deviation will take not more than five minutes, and (3) the deviation will not result in the route being late. To request a deviation please call two hours in advance on the day the deviation is being requested. Between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. call 540-443-7111, between 12 and 5 p.m. call 540-443-1500.
