This study was a detailed Alternatives Analysis for high capacity transit service on the west side of Norfolk, connecting the Tide light rail with the Naval Station Norfolk through the communities of Ghent and Chelsea. A light rail extension in this area was initially dismissed during a previous Alternatives Analysis, and the area was being reevaluated as a possible alternative to be brought forward during a forthcoming DEIS, this time using a multi-modal approach. Foursquare ITP’s role in the study was to assist with the development of the Purpose and Need through market and flow analysis; provide strategic guidance on public and stakeholder outreach; development of both Tier 1 and Tier 2 BRT and Light Rail alternatives from a transit operations perspective; and evaluation of the alternatives.
