Use v.in.ascii (file/import vector map) to import the points. Then use any one of the several interpolation routines to create a continuous surface from the transit time values (eg, v.surf.rst, r.surf.bspline, v.surf.idw - raster/interpolate surfaces [using vector points]). Read the online help for each module to see how they work and which is best for your purposes.
