Description:
Blacksburg Transit, or simply the BT, is a local government-owned urban-suburban bus line based in Blacksburg, Virginia. The system originated in 1983 with six buses, but has since expanded its operation to 50 buses and 11 vans in making 3.0 million trips per year. Its ridership is dominated by Virginia Tech students who account for 90 percent of all riders, with the remaining 10 percent being split evenly between Tech faculty and staff, and other Blacksburg citizens. Blacksburg Transit serves the towns of Blacksburg, Christiansburg and limited unincorporated portions of Montgomery County.

A new service offered to its riders in the mid 2000's is WiFi internet access. Offered only on select buses until 2009 when the service provider raised their data rates consequently BT suspended the WiFi service indefinitely.

Commuter bus service from Blacksburg to Roanoke is operated by Valley Metro as the Smart Way Bus.

Employees

The majority of BT's drivers are part-time employees, making BT a popular employer with Virginia Tech students as well as retirees. The majority of the service's full-time staff consists of administrative and supervisory positions.
