TPPC May 29, 2008

The Transportation, Parking, and Pedestrian Committee (TPPC) of Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Committee (RAC) held it's monthly meeting on Thursday morning.

An update was given on the new hybrid buses being used on VBWave Routes 30, 31, and 32. They are getting rave reviews, proving a smoother and quieter ride than anything else in Hampton Roads Transit's (HRT) fleet.

There was discussion of the proposed extension of hours for the horse riding on the beach franchise, which was deferred by City Council on Tuesday. A compromise may be in the works, either eliminating hours between June 15 and September 15 or moving Summer operations to another location.

Finally, the TPPC began considering the future of Transportation in the Resort Area. The TPPC expects to be sent a lengthy "to do" list once the Resort Area Strategic Action Plan is agreed to.
