HRT To Study Expansion Of The Tide To Naval Station Norfolk

Hampton Roads Transit announced recently that they have hired an engineering firm to conduct The Tide expansion to Naval Station Norfolk. The hiring of the firm to commence with the study is the first formal step toward expansion of The Tide to Naval Station Norfolk.

The engineering firm will determine which mode of transportation, light rail or bus service, would be a better solution for high capacity mass transit into the world’s largest naval base. HRT says high capacity transit to the base has been of interest to regional planners as well as commuters.

HRT also said the study will take 15 months and will be financed through federal and state funding. It will be the first year of a multi-year federal study process that is necessary if Norfolk wants to receive federal construction dollars.

RWA knows that this study will be a positive opportunity for Hampton Roads. The Tide provides affordable and efficient transportation for the City of Norfolk. To learn more about the benefits of light rail transportation, contact RWA today.
