Hampton Roads Transit is testing its automated passenger counting (APC) system. Between March 13 and 31, HRT operators will ask that any passenger who remains on board at the end of the line and who wants to travel back in the other direction to get off the train and then get back on. This simple step allows the APC system to properly count the passengers for the next trip. This only applies to passengers who arrive aboard the train at Newtown or EVMC and want to remain on the train for the return trip. No other passengers will be affected.
