Take Transit & Earn Rewards!

The average person spends about $9,000 annually on using and maintaining their car including car payments, insurance, and gas. Riding transit saves money and gives you back time you wouldn't have sitting behind the wheel of a car. Sign-up for the ConnectingVA app to start logging your trips and earn rewards.

 Plan Your Trip

Am I Clean?

We have developed a new tool that allows any person at an HRT stop to quickly, easily, and anonymously report back your observations that may be impacting the cleanliness of the stop or the condition of its passenger amenities.

The Adopt-A-Stop program encourages community engagement through volunteerism to help us maintain transit stops and keep the neighborhoods of Hampton Roads beautiful. You can help make a difference in your community.

Every day is Earth Day

Earth Day is the one day when people are encouraged to pick up trash from neighborhoods, beaches, rivers, lakes, and parks. But it doesn't have to be the only day. Please consider doing a little extra today — HRT's New Program For Earth Day - Every Day. If your stop is normally clean, then consider planting a tree in your own yard. Working together, we can improve the health and well-being of our communities.

What We're Doing

Electric Vehicles

We operate six all-electric, zero-emission buses along Virginia's busiest routes. These advanced vehicles provide an insight into the future of public transportation.
