Our most important mission at Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) is to ensure the well-being of our passengers and employees. Our goal is to achieve the highest level of safety through the promotion of proactive safety and security programs across all HRT modes of transit, in an effort to protect passengers, employees, and property.

These programs assist with both our mission and goals, but HRT needs your interaction as well, because the safety and security of our transit system is everyone’s responsibility. You play the most important part in keeping yourself and others safe and secure when using public transportation.
