For over twenty years, CollegeTransit has provided holiday transportation for college students. We proudly serve the students of James Madison and Virginia Tech for the major school holidays including Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Breaks. We leave directly from each University campus and drop students off at locations in PA, NJ and NY. For specific drop-off and pick-up locations, please see our Locations page.

Our goal is to provide value to students and parents by combining a convenient travel option with an affordable cost. Our prices are often less than what a family would spend on gas, tolls, hotels or airfare - not to mention their travel time to bring their student home. In short, CollegeTransit was created to make getting home for the holidays one less thing to worry about.



Trips are posted in the summer for Thanksgiving, September for Winter Break and December for Spring Break. You also can always click our

"With everything else parents and students deal with going into their first year at college, having CollegeTransit available to bring our daughter home from JMU was a godsend." - JMU parent from CT


"We love using CollegeTransit from Virginia Tech to return home to NJ. I am happy to have my sleep deprived student on a big comfy bus, mostly sleeping, and not being frustrated by the traffic jams on 81! Pick up in PA or NJ is easy!" - Virginia Tech parent from Central New Jersey
