Having made the trip to Williamsburg by mass transit buses, I thought I'd post the directions for anyone wanting to go with the season just around the corner. I'll give the directions coming from South Hampton Roads:
1. Take Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) Route 961 to the Newport News Transportation Center (NNTC).
2. From there, take HRT Route 107 to Patrick Henry Mall.
3. Travel HRT Route 116 the length of the route: from Patrick Henry Mall to Lee Hall.
4. At Lee Hall, take the Gray Line of Williamsburg Area Transport (WAT) to Busch Gardens.
Heading towards Williamsburg, get off at the stop at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. The England entrance of Busch Gardens is within sight. Heading back, the bus stop is on the other side of the road.
There is no WAT service on Sunday. For other Williamsburg attractions, continue on the Gray Line into downtown.
