[ARCHIVED] Multimodal Norfolk Seeks Resident Input

Redesigning the city’s transit network.

NORFOLK, VA – After surveying over 1000 residents and transit riders, the Multimodal Norfolk team developed a draft recommended transit network. This draft network of bus routes will move more residents faster and to areas they need and want to go, such as employment hubs and shopping areas. Residents have one final survey opportunity to provide feedback about the updated network that could be implemented as soon as October 2021.

Residents are encouraged to attend one of two upcoming virtual public meetings and view an informational video to learn more.

Multimodal Norfolk provides the framework for both large and small transportation decisions and helps define the direction that Norfolk’s transportation system will take over the coming years. The plan includes a full redesign of the city’s public transportation system that looks to improve the bus and transit system – and make it easier for all users to connect, including on foot, by bicycle or scooter and in vehicles.

Once the transit system redesign is approved, a transit service plan and schedules will be developed with Hampton Roads Transit for seamless implementation and launch of the city’s new transit system. Similarly, a program of projects will be recommended and accompanied by the associated resource allocation plan to ensure realistic implementation of the new vision for transit in Norfolk.
