We envision HRT among the preeminent transportation organizations in the nation. We see regional mobility as the cornerstone of economic development and quality of life in Hampton Roads.
Our mission is to serve the community through high quality, safe, efficient and environmentally friendly regional transportation services.
HRT currently is home to 985 employees.
HRT was formed on October 1, 1999, after a merger between Pentran and TRT - the first voluntary merger of two transit agencies in the country.
HRT serves seven cities: Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach. The entire service area population is 1.3 million.
HRT contracts with each city in our service area separately, and each city determines how much service is to be provided in their area.
