The Smart Way is a commuter bus service that links the Roanoke Valley to the New River Valley.  The service begins in downtown Roanoke at Valley Metro's Campbell Court Transportation Center and ends at the Virginia Tech Squires Student Center.  The route from the New River Velley to the Roanoke Valley is the exact reverse.

The Smart Way bus does not operate on Sunday, however, if you take the Smart Way Bus to the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport, and you will be returning to this airport on a Sunday, be sure to ask your driver for an "airport transfer." The driver will ask you your date of return, and mark it on this transfer. Save this transfer until your Sunday return. There are two shuttle options available to you, provided by Roanoke Airport Transportation Services. You must report to their desk, which is right outside the baggage claim area.  The times for their two shuttles are 2:30 p.m. and then again at 6:30 p.m. This shuttle is operated Roanoke Airport Transportation Services, and you must arrange this transportation through their staff at their desk. They will honor your airport transfer, and return you to your point of departure and will only charge you four dollars, just as if you were taking the Smart Way Bus. Valley Metro will pick up the balance of your tab.
