On Thursday afternoon in Hampton the Transportation District Commission of Hampton Roads (TDCHR) met.
Norfolk's light rail Starter Line is 95% complete. Also, the TDCHR took up an agreement between the TDCHR, Norfolk State University (NSU), the City of Norfolk, and the Norfolk Housing & Redevelopment Authority that largely covers final issues in the periphery of NSU.
For the first quarter of FY 2011, Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) is nearly $1.2 million under budget.
Ridership in September, 2010 was down somewhat from September, 2009.
Finally, the next TDCHR meeting will be November 18 in Norfolk. Normally the TDCHR meets on the 2nd Thursday in November and December (due to the holidays), but the 2nd Thursday this year is Veterans Day. Therefore, the TDCHR unanimously voted to move the meeting back one week.
