Connect Hampton Roads is an effort led by Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) HRT_Bus_SCto shape and implement a new plan to improve access to quality transportation options in the Hampton Roads region. The area is competing nationally and globally to attract and retain businesses, support its workforce and families, diversify its economy and to meet changing multi-generational demands for commuting alternatives to driving and traffic congestion.

Connect Hampton Roads has five goals:
  • Meet current and future demand for travel options other than driving and being stuck in traffic 
  • Support the region’s workforce and families 
  • Attract and retain businesses 
  • Support healthy and thriving communities 
  • Diversify the regional economy 

HRT has put together a survey to gather public input about what priority should be placed on investing in different transportation options. Every survey entry will be entered into a drawing and one person will be selected at random to win an iPad Air 2. Take the short survey and learn more at
