It really depends on where you are and where you are going. When I was sentenced for a violation of my supervised release the US Marshalls put me in a local county jail before I was transferred to BOP. I went straight to my destination because it was close by. (In fact, I was transferred from the Marshall's van to the BOP bus on the airport tarmac with Con-Air in front of me.)

If someone were being transferred far away they would probably get a trip to a holding facility.
