NORFOLK, Va. – The Hampton Roads Transit is adding two new express MAX routes and expanded service to Chesapeake’s Greenbrier area this fall.

Starting August 28, new MAX routes will serve the Joint Staff Compound in Suffolk from the Silverleaf Park and Ride in Virginia Beach and from the Indian River Road / Greenbrier Park and Ride lots. The MAX 968 will provide service between Silverleaf and the compound.

The new MAX 969 will provide service between the Indian River/Greenbrier Park & Ride lots to the compound.

According to HRT, the routes are pilot programs and will be evaluated after six months.

Service on MAX 918 will be reduced to one morning trip and one afternoon trip because of low ridership.

The fall changes will also include a new Greenbrier circulator that will operate between Robert Hall and the Greenbrier Mall. The route will give rides to people going to Greenbrier Mall and Crossways Shopping Center via Eden Way, Crossways Boulevard, Kristina Way, Volvo Parkway, Greenbrier Parkway and South Military Highway near Chesapeake Crossing.

Routes 108 and 116 will now provide hourly service, providing better connection at Lee Hall and at Patrick Henry Mall.

Several other routes are being changed. For more information on these service changes, visit gohrt.com.
