Location and Transportation

Nestled within the southeastern portion of Virginia, bordered by the York River, James River, Hampton Roads and Chesapeake Bay, the Virginia Peninsula is afforded a prime location in proximity to various modes of transportation.

Its position on the water places it close to the terminals of the Port of Virginia, Newport News Marine Terminal, the Norfolk International Terminals and the Portsmouth Marine Terminal all ran by the Virginia Port Authority. At 50-feet, the Virginia Port Authority offers the deepest shipping channels on the U.S. East Coast; fully prepared to accommodate the 10,000+ TEU vessels. More than 30 international steamship lines service the Port today, making Virginia a true maritime hub. Norfolk Southern and CSX offer on-dock, double-stack intermodal service to key inland markets in the Midwest, Ohio Valley and the Southeast. A leader in quality and environment – The Port of Virginia maintains ISO 9001 and 14001 certification.

On land, commuters and travelers utilize the Hampton Roads Transit service (HRT). HRT provides public transportation to the seven area cities and offers 64 fixed regular routes. Greyhound and Amtrak transportation services are available for riders looking to travel regionally or nationally, while the Yellow Cab Company and other local taxi services are also available.

The Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport (NNWIA) has been a major asset to the Virginia Peninsula since its establishment during WWII, when it was part of the U.S. Army’s Camp Patrick Henry. The airport is served by two airlines: Delta and American Airlines.
