Richmond Transit: What's Happening and What's Next?
A growing grassroots network across metro Richmond is organizing around the need and benefits of a regional public transportation system.
Partnership for Smarter Growth and RVA Rapid Transit invite you to join in an informative and engaging evening about transit in our region. Experts from TransitCenter will be in town to discuss where Richmond fits in national trends regarding bus networks and BRT, transit-oriented land use and streetscaping, as well as cities and transit agencies working together. We will also have updates from GRTC on developments happening right now in our public transit system, and an overview from RVA Rapid Transit on critical opportunities this fall to encourage greater connection across the region.
Admission is free, but please RSVP below. Light food and refreshments will be served before and following the event. Please spread the word!
