Ray Amorusa, Hampton Road Transit's Chief Planning and Development Officer explained the challenges of our multi-mode transit system. Currently, 73 daily bus routes, along with light rail, trolleys, and a ferry, serve 43,000 daily riders. Unfortunately, HRT does not have a dedicated funding stream. Each year, the councils for the six cities it serves decides how much funding will be provided for the year which, in turn, determines how many routes there are and their frequency.
