Putting the Peninsula
in the Fast Lane
Imagine a quicker, easier, and more comfortable commute to work or school. Imagine going to the store without the hassle of parking. Wouldn’t that be great? A new transit system being considered for the Peninsula could help do just that. Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) and the Cities of Hampton and Newport News are proposing a bus rapid transit (BRT) system that would link many popular destinations of the two cities.
To make this vision a reality, HRT, the cities, and the Federal Transit Administration executed an environmental review of the Peninsula Bus Rapid Transit project. The environmental review evaluated BRT corridors that will make getting around the Peninsula faster and more rider-friendly.
