DRPT to Unveil Draft Recommendations for Super NoVa Transit/TDM Vision Plan

The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) announced it will unveil draft recommendations for the Super NoVa Transit and TDM Vision Plan. The Super NoVa region studied Northern Virginia, as traditionally defined, as well Culpeper, King George, and Caroline counties, and portions of the Shenandoah Valley, the District of Columbia and parts of Maryland and West Virginia.

The plan's draft recommendations will be based on public and stakeholder input and extensive evaluation of future population growth, employment trends, land use, and travel demand. The draft recommendations for the Super NoVa Transit and TDM Vision Plan present a vision for enhanced regional mobility and include:

  • Expansive commuter bus network throughout the region
  • Interconnected network of high-capacity transit services in the region's urban areas
  • Network of hubs to connect people to transportation services and programs
  • Increased coordination of local transit services across jurisdictional boundaries
  • Pedestrian and bicycle improvements to enhance connections to transit services and facilities
  • Comprehensive regional TDM strategy and programs
  • Leveraging technology to enable people to make informed decisions about travel
