Thanksgiving Holiday Schedules: GRTC operates a Holiday schedule on Thanksgiving Day, and normal schedules the day before and after Thanksgiving Day. Please review the posted Holiday schedules here to see how your route is affected on Thanksgiving. GRTC remains Zero Fare (all routes are free to ride). We wish you a safe and happy holiday!

Governor’s Mask Mandate UPDATE: Per the updated order, all passengers aged five and older must have facial coverings to ride GRTC. If you still need a mask, GRTC Operators usually have a limited supply of disposable masks on-board to ensure no one is left behind at a bus stop. Wear your mask correctly over both your nose and mouth, and do not remove or loosen your mask on-board. Limit conversations when riding, including on the phone. If you are unable to wear a face mask properly, please contact our Eligibility Coordinator (Phone: 804-358-3871 ext. 434) to discuss alternatives we offer.
