The Tide

The Tide extends 7.4 miles from the Eastern Virginia Medical Center complex east through downtown Norfolk to Newtown Road at the border of Virginia Beach.  It is served by 11 stations and four park-and-ride lots. Parking is free. Tickets can be purchased at all ticket vending machines, at select retail outlets, and on line here. One-way Tide tickets can only be purchased from ticket vending machines, and they expire 90 minutes from the time of purchase.
