Valley Metro and Amtrak offering a new process for reserving seats on the Smart Way connector bus that will take you to D.C. and further north.
The bus will go from Roanoke and Blacksburg to Lynchburg and then on Amtrak in D.C.
People can even go online to make both their Smart Way Connector and Amtrak reservations online.
The current $4 Smart Way fee will be added to the cost of the Amtrak online reservation so that only one payment is required for the bus and the train ride.
In addition to the new reservation system, Valley Metro will now be available on all observed holidays.
