Richmond Requests $25 Million Grant for Bus Rapid Transit

The City of Richmond and Commonwealth of Virginia have requested a $25 million federal grant to cover half of the cost of construction of the Broad Street Bus Rapid Transit System. The 7.5 mile system stretching from Willow Lawn to Rocketts Landing aims to improve reliability and travel times for transit riders, support economic development along the Broad Street Corridor and generally expand access for non-drivers to jobs. If Virginia wins the grant, service could begin as soon as the end of 2017. There will be public meetings on the project on May 20th at Main Street Station from 6 to 8pm and on May 21st at the DMV on Broad Street from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
