Choosing transit for the city

We’ve been focusing a lot lately on Chesterfield, particularly Route 1, but there are also incredible things afoot in the City. Over the past couple of months the Richmond Transit Network Plan folks, a team of transit rockstars (seriously!), have been hard at work redesigning Richmond City’s bus system and bringing it into the modern era. They've just released three concepts for a revamped bus network (called: Ridership, Coverage, and Familiar) and they need feedback!

To get a deep dive on what the three choices would mean for Richmond, I really recommend reading The Richmond Transit Choices Report—or for quick overview see their post “Visualizing Transit Choices”.

In a nutshell, the Richmond Transit Network Plan team is asking key questions like: Do we want longer wait times between buses, or shorter walks to bus stops? Do we want more frequent bus service on major corridors, or more coverage of the City but with less frequent lines? The great thing is: It's up to us. We get to decide!

Attend one of these four public meetings and let them know where you fall on the spectrum of Ridership, Coverage, and Familiar. You can also always email comments here.
