Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation

Core Mission

The mission of DRPT is to facilitate and improve the mobility of the citizens of Virginia and to promote the efficient transport of goods and people in a safe, reliable and cost-effective manner.

To accomplish this mission, we support programs that:

  • Assist in managing the growth in congestion on Virginia’s highways
  • Improve access for the general public and businesses to transportation choices (public transportation, carpools, vanpools, human service transportation, passenger rail, freight rail and telecommuting)
  • Provide access and improvements to Virginia’s railways to encourage economic development and reduce traffic on Virginia’s highways
  • Increase communications to the general public, businesses and community decision makers on alternative transportation choices

We are the Commonwealth’s advocate for promoting transportation options to the general public, businesses, and community decision makers.  As an agency entrusted with public dollars, we seek the highest possible return on investment to maximize limited funding and strive to implement best practice management tools and techniques.
