Planning and Development

The HRT Chief Planning and Development Officer works with HRT staff to set the level of transit service for the region. Working in coordination with local cities, the Planning Department develops the routes, frequency of service, and location of transit services based on the ability of a city to share in the cost. In addition, major development studies and projects to expand bus or rail service or to evaluate its effectiveness are managed within this department including the Virginia Beach Transit Extension Study. The most current studies and reports are included here.
