Petersburg Area Transit is a bus system for the Petersburg Tri-cities Area. There are twelve color-coded routes that extend to such destinations as Virginia State University, Southpark Mall, and Fort Lee.

In a partnership with Greater Richmond Transit Company, PAT provides express service to Downtown Richmond and any other destinations accessible by GTRC. As of June 2009, in addition to the service to Richmond, Blackstone Bus Service offers and express route that travels from Blackstone, VA to Southside Virginia Training Center(just outside of Petersburg).

A centralized multi-modal transit hub for the PAT is now being used as the transfer point for all buses. It is located at the corner of Union at Washington streets and Wythe at Union Streets
