NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
GRTC Regional Public Transportation Plan
March 4, 2021
5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
GRTC is developing a Regional Public Transportation Plan that includes plans for expansion of the network by about 20 percent in FY 2022. The 2020 General Assembly created the Central Virginia Transportation Authority (CVTA) which establishes dedicated funding for priority transportation investments in the Richmond region. GRTC will receive 15 percent of these new CVTA funds, in which about $10 Million is planned to be allocated toward expansion. The Regional Public Transportation Plan which is required to be submitted to CVTA annually in collaboration with PlanRVA will identify how GRTC will spend the regional dollars. But first we need your feedback!
Phase 1 Feedback: Alternative Concepts for Expansion (Winter 2021)
GRTC will ask the public to review two alternative concepts for expansion in the Richmond region, where one concept prioritizes coverage routes and another prioritizes ridership.
Phase 2 Feedback: Draft Regional Public Transportation Plan (Spring 2021)
Based on the input received from Phase 1, GRTC will present a draft Regional Public Transportation Plan for feedback.
