Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Virginia Tech Parking and Transportation Master Plan?

This includes the construction of the Route 460 Interchange, the Multi-Modal Transit Facility, Drillfield improvements, as well as the future North Precinct build out.

How can Virginia Tech University make use of the Parking and Transportation Plan?
The plan will allow the University to determine if the existing parking operations, which has been in place for over 20 years, will remain viable in the future. Additionally, a “Complete Street” approach will be used to ensure each mode of transportation—bike, walk, transit—receives a balanced consideration in the assessment.
