Hello Randolph RVA:
We wanted to let you know about the important work going on with the Richmond Transit Network Plan. With the upcoming opening of GRTC Pulse, the city has an opportunity to rethink its transit system with the new BRT service on Broad and Main Streets. The Richmond Transit Network Plan will serve as a blueprint to update the Richmond’s transit system and redesign bus routes in the city over the next few years.
Over the past couple of months our team has been hard at work developing concepts to redesign the City’s bus system. We recently released our concepts and now we’re asking for your thoughts. For an overview of the three concepts and what’s behind them read our blog post: “Visualizing Transit Choices”.
You can learn a lot more at our Concepts Overview page and compare how the concepts affect your access to the city at our Compare page. At this stage of the plan we are asking you to weigh how these concepts fit your priorities for the City’s transit network. Do you want just a little change or a lot? Do you want to focus on reaching the most people even if it means less frequent service? Or do you want to concentrate service to get the highest ridership?
Let us know by attending one of our eight public meetings (details below) or complete our online survey available on our home page: http://www.richmondtransitnetwork.com.
