The public meetings for our once in a lifetime Richmond Transit Network Plan (RTNP) are rolling right along. Many thanks to those who made it out this week. There will be two more chances coming up on 6-8 pm Tuesday, May 3 (DMV, 2300 W Broad St, 23230), and 12-2 pm Wednesday, May 4 (Richmond Main Public Library, 101 E Franklin St, 23219) for this first phase of the plan.
If you can't make a meeting though, you can still participate in this first part via the Online Survey: Richmond Transit Network Plan. Carve out 5-10 min and join the excitement. Do you care more about short wait times or short walking distance to a bus stop? Do you think our primary goal should be high ridership or more expansive coverage (perhaps even Jeff Davis/Rt 1 in Chesterfield?! just saying)? Should we focus on all-day service or peak hour service?
Your input is vital and will be incorporated into the plan, so spread the word! Post on Facebook! Send forth telegrams! And here is a cool post describing some of these overarching transit choices before us: "Jarrett Walker: Empty Buses Serve a Purpose."
