[ARCHIVED] Petersburg Breaks Ground on New Park and Ride Facility


On September 9, 2020, the City of Petersburg hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for a new park and ride facility that will increase travel accessibility throughout the Tri-Cities. This park and ride project is funded entirely through the Commonwealth’s Smart Scale which is a prioritization process focused on investing limited tax dollars into the best projects that meet the most critical transportation needs for Virginians.

As described by Jennifer Mitchell, Director of the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, "park and rides help reduce congestion by making it easier to use public transportation and providing a safe alternative to driving alone in a car."

The new park and ride facility will cover 76,500 square feet and will have up to 215 parking spaces. The park and ride will be located next to the current Petersburg Area Transit Station. Construction is slated to begin in December 2020 with an estimated completion date in 2023.
