Commuter Needs Study

The Central Virginia Planning District Commission (CVPDC), in coordination with VDOT and DRPT, is developing a Commuter Needs Study. The Study will span the entire CVPDC area, and will identify current commuting patterns, the transportation needs of both commuters and businesses, and will be used to guide future decision-making as we allocate transportation funding through the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). In addition, the results of the Study will influence the programming and operations of our current Commuter Assistance Program (CAP).

DRPT Unveils New Trip Planner Tool

Virginia’s Department of Rail and Public Transportation has released a new online map-based tool to help commuters plan their trips via bus, rail, car/vanpools or walking/biking. The new Trip Planner will equip commuters in rural areas with a tool that has more advanced capabilities than Google Maps, which typically focuses on transportation services with set routes and schedules, by providing information about micro transit opportunities. Visit the ConnectingVA.org website today to try the new Trip Planner and download our mobile app which allows you find options for your commute, earn rewards and more.
