Pursuit of a permanent transfer center continues as GRTC works with project partners, the City of Richmond, and other downtown stakeholders to navigate the complexities of site selection for a permanent downtown Richmond transportation hub. 

The Temporary Transfer Plaza opened in April 2014 and served as a reliable connection point while the City hosted two major bicycle events, 2014 USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championship and the 2015 UCI World Road Cycling Championship. 

The Temporary Transfer Plaza:

  • Has bus bays curbside along 9th Street and Leigh Street
  • Offers benches, trashcans, information kiosks, and bus shelters.

Effective June 24, 2018:

Routes only go to the Temporary Transfer Plaza after 7PM and on Sundays.

Trip Tips:

  • You can transfer wherever it is convenient to do so.  You do not have to wait to transfer at the Temporary Transfer Plaza.
  • No Express routes service the Temporary Transfer Plaza.
