By using the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell you can transfer list from one site to another

1- Run the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell as administrator
2- Export your list from you source site using this command

export-spweb -Identity http://YOUR_SERVER_NAME/ -path C:\PATH_TO_SAVE_EXPORTED_FILE.cmp -itemurl "/Lists/YOUR_LIST_NAME" 

3- Import the exported list to the destination site using this command

Import-SPWeb -Identity http://SERVER_NAME/ -Path C:\Lists\PATH_TO_SAVE_EXPORTED_FILE.cmp
