Fiscal Year 2020 Agency Report
DRPT’s annual report for Fiscal Year 2020 highlights public transportation and freight rail initiatives to fulfill its mission of efficiently moving people and goods with primary areas of activity in rail, public transportation, and commuter services. DRPT’s most significant initiative for FY 2020 was Transforming Rail in Virginia, which included a $3.7 billion landmark deal to purchase 350 miles of railroad right-of-way and 225 miles of track. As reflected in this report, FY 2020 was a unique time for transportation in Virginia due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the majority of this report focuses on the yearly activities that occurred, a section was added to highlight the role and importance of transportation during the COVID-19 health crisis.
