Bluefield Area Transit (B.A.T.) services Mercer and McDowell Counties with routes into Bluefield, Princeton, Athens and Welch. Buses operate with limited weekend service to the Athens area. The system is closed for all State holidays.

Overall this transit system does a great job for our rural area....we are indeed fortunate to have it. For those that do not drive or cannot drive or do not have a car it is really great.

I am sure like anything else it is not perfect BUT it is a real asset to the entire area.
