DRPT Completes Virginia Transit Equity and Modernization Study

The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation concluded the Transit Equity and Modernization Study, and it looks forward to sharing the findings.

The 2021 General Assembly passed House Joint Resolution 542 directing DRPT to conduct a needs assessment that focuses on the modernization of transit in Virginia and engagement opportunities for underserved and underrepresented communities. After nearly two years, DRPT has completed its work.

The study can be found on DRPT’s website. Take the time to review the executive summary, final report, and other resources.

DRPT will host a virtual forum on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2022, from 1 to 2 p.m. to go over the study.

Attendance is free and open to the public. Please submit questions in advance through the event registration.

The study team will present an update on the key findings, the action plan recommendations, and future steps for how to advance the study.

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a DRPT program, service, or activity, should contact DRPT ADA Coordinator Mike Mucha at (804) 786-4440 or as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
