This brick federal style building houses the Greyhound-Trailways bus station. Many bus stations are simply bus stops at garages and laundromats in smaller towns. This one, although antique in style, has a significant waiting and ticketing area. I have transferred buses here during my childhood (it hasn't changed a bit even as of October, 2008) and in January, 2002 when I was coming up from Raleigh-Durham.
The Petersburg Area Transit is a bus system tri-cities area (Petersburg, Hopewell, and Colonial Heights). There are twelve colour coded routes that extend to such destinations as Virginia State University, Southpark Mall, and Fort Lee. The PAT not only covers the tri-cities area. In cooperation with the Greater Richmond Transit Company, it also provides express service to John Tyler Community College in Chester as well as express service to downtown Richmond and any other destinations accessible by the GTRC.
