Virginia Breeze began operations in December 2017 and offers bus services along Corridor I-81. In the wake of the pandemic, operations were suspended last March and resumed with two additional routes in August 2020.

Virginia Breeze currently operates its original north and south route connecting Blacksburg and Washington, DC, offering eight stops and a 6.5-hour drive. The other two routes are the Capital Connector, which includes Martinsville, Danville, and Richmond, and the Piedmont Express, which includes Danville and Lynchburg – each connection to Washington, DC

With the Union Station connection in Washington, travelers can then take a Megabus or Amtrak train to cities along the Northeast Corridor, including Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City and Boston, or the subway to locations throughout the borough.
