Home Ride at Virginia Tech
Providing a safe, convenient, economical way to get home.


Our safe, comfortable charter buses offer convenient service between Lane Stadium 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 Lane Stadium (Gate 2) at Virginia Tech. 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.

Going north, we leave Blacksburg at 12:30 PM, 2:30 PM, and/or 4:30 PM on Fridays, drop off passengers at Harrisonburg or Charlottesville at 3:00 PM, 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 at 7:30 PM, and reaches Blacksburg at 10:00 PM.
