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 are embarking on an environmental review of the Peninsula Bus Rapid Transit project — and we want you to be a part of it! The environmental review will evaluate BRT corridors that will make getting around the Peninsula faster and more rider-friendly.
