This project is not a high-level study to evaluate corridors for improved transit. It is also not focused on developing new detailed bus service plans (for example, creating new stops and route schedules). Rather, this project will take a fresh look at the overall transit system design and performance, and determine what changes should be made to make the region’s core bus system (HRT) as effective and efficient as possible.
The TDCHR is a regional transportation organization. It is comprised of 6 local governments: Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach. Through coordination and collaboration, the TDCHR has the primary responsibility to weigh factors that influence the quality of bus service across the 6 cities (for example, costs, technology, governance, operational challenges, etc.) and to identify the sustainable and appropriate role for bus service across the six-city area – both today and for the years ahead.
