NNXPRESS: Locate Company Shuttles and Taxis

Newport News Shipbuilding provides complimentary on-campus park-and-ride transportation services (inside and outside of shipyard gates) for its employees – these services include shuttles and taxis. Currently, the company’s fulltime shuttles and taxis are equipped with GPS locators, enabling users to view a map of NNS shuttle routes and also pinpoint the exact location and estimated time of arrival to specific shuttle stops during operational hours.

In the near future, GPS locators will be installed on 10 additional shuttles – at that time, those vehicles will be visible within the NNXPRESS app. NNS will evaluate employee usage and feedback and will consider adding additional capabilities to the app based on information received. Employees are encouraged to send NNXPRESS feedback and/or questions to

This app is free and available for public download in both the Google Play and/or Apple app stores by searching, “NNXPRESS.”
