To The Bottom And Back (2BNB) normally operates buses on a continuous loop throughout the major arteries in the city from 6pm to 3am, Thursday-Saturday. 2BNB bridges the gap between the Fan district and the East End/Downtown, an area approximately 5 miles long, and aims to fill the void that existing public transportation creates. They will stop anywhere along the route for a pick up or drop off.
- Reduce the quantity of drinking and driving incidents and create safer streets for pedestrians and motorists alike and create awareness through education to the dangers of drinking and driving.
- Provide free transportation relief of the poor, the distressed or underprivileged in conjunction with other charitable organizations.
- Through transportation, encourage a more eco-friendly way to move about Richmond and other cities.
