President, Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance

Bob Chase is president of the Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance, a business-citizen coalition founded in 1987 to promote greater business community and citizen awareness of and involvement in regional transportation issues. Today, the Alliance is the only private sector organization focused exclusively on making better transportation a reality for Northern Virginia citizens and businesses.


For more than two decades, Mr. Chase and the Alliance have established a proven track record of educating and mobilizing the public to advance major regional road and transit improvements.


Current Alliance priorities include securing new, sustainable statewide and regional funding and developing regional and statewide performance-based plans that include projects such as improving I-66 inside and outside the Beltway; new Potomac River bridges, bypasses and the Tri-County Parkway; and other investments that do the most to relieve congestion and improve travel times.


The Alliance also leads the Northern Virginia Transportation Business Coalition, a group of major business organizations working to develop consensus on transportation funding and other regional and state transportation issues.


Mr. Chase is former Chairman of the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board Citizen Advisory Committee and graduate of Brown University.
