Fiscal Year 2021 Agency Report
Fiscal Year 2021 was a productive and dynamic year for DRPT and its rail, transit, and transportation demand management partners. First, the COVID-19 pandemic had a tremendous impact on transit agencies, Amtrak, and freight providers. Second, due to the pandemic, the Commonwealth Transportation Board did not adopt a Six-Year Improvement Program for Fiscal Year 2021 until December 2020. Third, DRPT staff started work to establish a new state entity, the Virginia Passenger Rail Authority, which will oversee passenger rail service in the Commonwealth moving forward.
