Lobby Day Road Closures and GRTC Detours

GRTC is required to detour many bus routes on Lobby Day, January 20th in Downtown Richmond near the State Capitol. Service delays are also likely as a result of increased traffic with dozens of motor coaches in the area. At this time, Broad St. is expected to remain open in both directions. Therefore, GRTC currently plans to operate the Pulse normally. In the event Broad St. is closed, additional detours will go into effect, including on the Pulse off Broad St. Details are below. Customers can find up-to-date information Monday on GRTC’s website, social media and through the Customer Service Call Center 804-358-4782.
