As a division of the Department of Public Works, Suffolk Transit provides safe, cost-efficient fixed route transit services to Suffolk's core downtown service area. Suffolk Transit is funded through the City of Suffolk's Transit Fund to provide fixed route and paratransit service to the core downtown service area. In January 2012, Suffolk Transit was formed utilizing Virginia Regional Transit (VRT) as the City's service provider. As the City's partner and contractor, VRT provides the operational staff and support for the system and they work closely with city staff to provide the best transit experience possible.
All buses are equipped with bicycle racks, seat belts and wheelchair lifts for handicapped or mobility impaired individuals. A Paratransit service is offered for those individuals who have a temporary or permanent disability that would not allow them to take advantage of our regular route service.
