GRTC Transit System was awarded a $24.9 Million TIGER Grant to develop the GRTC Pulse Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project, which will serve a 7.6 mile route from Willow Lawn to Rocketts Landing. Overall cost of the GRTC Pulse BRT Project is supported with matching funds from the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, the City of Richmond, and Henrico County. Construction on this Design-Build system has been underway since September 2016 and revenue operations are scheduled to begin on June 24, 2018.

Ashley and Brian will present a project overview, construction overview and challenges, operations and integration overview, and long-range goals for the Project.
