    Ride the VB Wave

    Ride VB Wave

    Why hassle with traffic and parking when there's a Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) VB Wave headed your way? From the North End of the beach to Rudee Inlet, and everywhere in between, HRT's VB Wave is a convenient, fun way to get from place to place. It's the way to go should you want to shop at Virginia Beach's premier mall, splash around at Ocean Breeze Water Park, visit the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, or check out a concert at Farm Bureau Live at Virginia Beach.

    For more information about HRT services, call (757) 222-6100 or visit www.gohrt.com.

    Beach Access for the Disabled

    Disabled

    The Virginia Beach Boardwalk is a concrete walkway that is accessible to individuals with varying degrees of mobility. Ramps are available at each street to take you from the Boardwalk to the sand. In addition, wooden walkways that take you onto the beach are located at 8th, 17th, 24th, and 30th Streets, along with Grommet Island Beach Park & Playground. Water edge access cannot be guaranteed at all wooden walkways due to weather and the condition of the beach. Ramps are extended as far as possible given the condition of the beach and time of year.

    Designated disabled on-street parking is available at Rudee Loop, 2nd, 6th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 20th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 30th, 33rd, 34th, 36th, 37th, and 38th. Designated disabled off-street parking is available in all municipal lots.

    Metered parking is free for up to four hours for the disabled. Virginia Beach offers the use of two all-terrain wheelchairs at the oceanfront free of charge to persons with disabilities. Beach wheelchairs are available in the resort area on a first-come, first-served basis from Mid-May to Mid-September.
    For more information, call (757) 491-SUNN or (800) VA BEACH.
