Blackstone Area Bus
Serving Our Community Since 2003

Blackstone Area Bus System (BABS) and Piedmont Area Transit (PAT) carried more than 30,000 passengers in 2008- a record for BABS/PAT, which provides public transportation for the residents of Blackstone, Nottoway, Amelia, Buckingham, Cumberland, Prince Edward, Brunswick and Lunenburg.

Ridership in 2008 surpassed 30,000, a 19% increase over the 25, 000 passengers carried in 2007. Factors for the increase include high fuel costs and the economy crumbling.
