Home Ride at Virginia Tech
Providing a safe, convenient, economical way to get home.
Our safe, comfortable charter buses offer convenient service
between Library Plaza on the Virginia Tech campus and
Northern Virginia, Harrisonburg, Charlottesville, Richmond and Hampton.
Our professional drivers let you sleep, study, or
just relax without worrying about who is at the wheel.
Home Ride is a bus service designed for college students, so our
schedule fits your needs. Generally, we leave Blacksburg on Friday afternoons
and return Sunday nights. We also make special runs for Fall break,
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring break to fit the university calendar.
All trips start from Library Plaza at Virginia Tech. On Sunday
nights, returning students can get off at either Library Plaza or
by Cassell Coliseum on Washington Street.
Our stop in Northern Virginia is in the south parking lot of the Vienna
Metro Station. In Charlottesville, we stop at the Student Activities
Building at UVA; in Harrisonburg, at the JMU Bookstore building;
in Richmond, at the James Cabell Library at VCU;
in Hampton, near the Outback Steakhouse at Peninsula Town Center Mall.

5:00 PM, and/or 7:00 PM, and arrive in Vienna at 5:00 PM, 7:00 PM, and/or
9:00 PM. We do not run at all three times on our less-busy weekends,
so please call to inquire about specific dates. The return trip leaves
Vienna at 5:30 PM Sunday, picks up at Harrisonburg or Charlottesville
