Blacksburg Transit regularly offers part-time transportation planning internship opportunities, usually for academic credit as a field-study option for college students. The purpose of the internship program is to provide exposure to and gain experience related to decision-making at Blacksburg Transit and regional transportation/transit planning at the MPO level. The focus is on dissemination of study findings, responding to bus service requests, and writing/summarizing/organizing transit planning efforts.

The following internships are offered:

  • Transportation Planning Internship: Follow the link for the job description and required skills.
  • GIS & Planning Internship: Follow the link for the job description and required skills.

Internships are open to undergraduate and graduate students, and for recent graduates on a case-by-case basis.

Successful completion of the internship will result in three credit hours for those enrolled as students, (e.g., via VT's UAP/GEOG 4964). Both positions are generally 12-16 hours per week to be performed onsite at BT, with flexible scheduling arrangements generally during the Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. workweek. Internships are unpaid.
