Cavalier Connection

276.523.RIDE (7433)

The Cavalier Connection is a collaboration between The University of Virginia’s College at Wise and MEOC Transit. The collaboration is intended to mitigate traffic, provide transportation to Students, Faculty and Staff around campus and the surrounding area. A ride card must be used for the transit system. It can be purchased by Faculty, Staff and Students with a UVa-Wise ID at the UVa-Wise Bookstore. The ride card offers twenty rides for $10. The Cavalier Connection is not only used for quick transit to class, shopping, or food, but can also be used to get to doctor appointments, airports, and bus stations. If your destination is not on any route that we offer, just call 276.523.RIDE (7433) and schedule your trip.  The Cavalier Connection also offers free shuttles to the David J. Prior Convocation Center and  Carl Smith Stadium for home athletic events.
