Due to the Dickens of a Christmas Festival the Trolley routes on these days will be on detour from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Trolleys will not be able to service the Market Building stop on Campbell Ave or the Market stop on Church Ave. The closest stop they will service is Jefferson and Kirk at the Carilion Admin Building. Please plan ahead for these deviations, and enjoy the holiday festivities.

Holiday Delays:

Due to holiday traffic and increased ridership, please expect potential delays on all mall routes. Please plan ahead if you require the service of any mall route and we ask that all customers have fare ready prior to the bus arriving. We hope you have safe and happy holidays.


Please expect transit service delays due to multiple road construction projects and road closures. Please call Valley Metro with any questions 540.982.2222. Thank You!
