Your New GRTC Transit System

GRTC is preparing to implement new routes in the City of Richmond and Henrico County when the new GRTC Pulse service begins (exact date TBD). GRTC held 14 public meetings in March to present this new network and receive public input for final tweaks. In April, GRTC requested and received public comment on the recommended placement of added (new) bus stops. In July, GRTC's Board of Directors voted to approve the final recommended network. In August, GRTC held five public information meetings to update the community on new bus routes and preview new service hours. In October and November, GRTC and Henrico County held three public meetings to discuss short and long term transit possibilities. This project page will be updated as we progress through the education and implementation of the new bus routes.

Use the interactive map below to explore the new routes, frequencies of service, and bus stop locations. You can type in your address or place in the upper right search box. Zoom in and out using the + and - icons. View the map legend using the >> icon. You can also launch this map in a new window by clicking here. Remember, routes that overlap on the same roads create higher frequencies so you don't have to wait as long for the next bus!
