Request for Public Comment: Proposed Broad and Main St Bus Stop Changes

GRTC is introducing Your New GRTC Transit System. The new transit system is designed to provide enhanced service for GRTC riders, taking advantage of the new GRTC Pulse (Bus Rapid Transit) - a 7.6 mile partial dedicated lane, high frequency service from Willow Lawn to Rocketts Landing.  

Richmond City Council provided bus stop spacing guidelines for GRTC as the new route design is implemented, which is approximately five bus stops per mile in urban, walkable areas like Broad Street Downtown. Therefore, the following bus stops are proposed to be removed or added on Broad Street to comply with this bus stop spacing policy:

•          441 – Broad/Kent - Remove

•          396/397 – Broad/Blacker – Remove

•          3306 – Broad/Harrison – Remove

•          2521- Broad/8th – Add 

•          384 – Broad/9th – Add

•          349/350 – Broad/10th – Remove

•          1614– Main/17th - Remove

•          1619/1620 – Main/20th – Remove

•          1623/1624 – Main/23rd – Remove

•          Orleans/Old Main – Add

A full list of stops City-wide recommended to be added and stops that will be removed can be accessed on our website:  http://www.ridegrtc.com/statistics-reports/projects-plans/your-new-grtc-transit-system.
