Blacksburg Transit buses get new look

BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) In Blacksburg the town's bus system is changing its look for the first time in 34 years.

The Blacksburg Transit revealed its new design for the buses within the last week.

A huge logo and maroon and silver colors will cover the entire bus. The transit hopes to increase awareness of the bus system and give the fleet a fresh look.

"We look and see what other transit agencies are doing around the country and moving away from the style that we have now to more motion and more color and more bold types of designs," said Tom Fox, the Blacksburg Transit director.

The familiar creme colored bus design will disappear throughout the next year.

Grants helped pay for the new look.
