Summer 2022 Update
A New Direction for Transportation in Norfolk!
The City of Norfolk has completed a Multimodal Transportation Master Plan to help define the direction that the City 's transportation system will take over the coming years.
Thank you to all the residents, businesses, city leaders, key stakeholder groups, and city staff for your efforts throughout this two-year planning process. We could not have successfully completed this plan without you!
The final Multimodal Transportation Master Plan is available under the Project Resources & Documents page. Take a look! Questions or comments? Email the Multimodal Norfolk project team at email@example.com.
Norfolk Adopts A New Bus Network!
Based on thorough conversations and compromise around competing priorities, Norfolk City Council unanimously adopted a resolution supporting the implementation of the revised new network on November 16, 2021. The recommended changes in this new network were the subject of significant public conversation and discussion with elected officials.
Making such a significant change to the bus network requires careful planning and coordination between the City and HRT to prepare for and implement the new network. HRT is currently working on the final routing of the revised new network as well as the scheduling.
**Implementation of the new bus network has been delayed due to a shortage of bus operators as an ongoing impact from the Covid-10 pandemic. HRT has a robust program in place to recruit and train new drivers to help return to pre-Covid service levels.**
