Park and Ride Design Guidelines
Park and Ride Investment Strategies
VDOT’s Park and Ride lot investment strategies' study displays the top ranked Park and Ride needs in each of the nine VDOT construction districts. Each Park and Ride lot priority has a summary sheet with project details such as site location, cost estimate, and projected benefit to the roadway network and for Virginia’s commuters.
Park and Ride design guidelines assist in the planning and pre-scoping of Park and Ride lots, both stand-alone projects as well as for lots planned as part of a larger project.
VTrans2040 is the long-range, statewide multimodal policy plan that provides the overarching vision and goals for transportation in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
It identifies transportation conditions and trends anticipated and their potential influence on transportation.
Return on Investment of TDM Calculator
Mobility Lab, a program of Arlington County, Virginia’s Commuter Services Bureau, LDA Consulting, and the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) at the University of South Florida – through a grant from the Federal Highway Administration – has created a pair of calculators for the TDM industry to quantify the return on investment in local economies from its strategies.
VDOT works closely with the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). The mission of DRPT is to improve the mobility of people and goods while expanding transportation choices in the commonwealth.
This agency plays a key role in ensuring mobility for Virginians. DRPT focuses on rail, public transportation and commuter services.
