Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT)
Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation's (DRPT) Virginia Trip Planner helps people find rides that are outside the scope of service of Chesterfield County Mobility Services. These can be trips going outside the Access on Demand service areas, stretcher transport, veteran trips or free rides for those who may not be able to afford the Mobility Services $6 fee.
DRPT developed the Virginia Trip Planner so that Virginians can plan multimodal trips with fixed-route transit, on-demand transit, rail, bikeshare, carpool, vanpool, park-and-ride lots and other transportation options across the Commonwealth. The Connecting VA map-based system makes public transportation trip planning more accessible and reachable.
