We want better transit, walking, and biking in Richmond
The Richmond region is handicapped by a limited transit system. A 2013 report from Mayor Dwight Jones' Anti-Poverty Commission finds that 18% of Richmond households lack access to an automobile; 42% have one automobile; and over 70% of Richmond-area jobs are inaccessible to residents of transit-served neighborhoods, leaving them access to only 26.5% of the jobs in the region.
Partnership for Smarter Growth, the Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC), RVA Rapid Transit, Bike Walk RVA, and other partners and volunteers are committed to discussing these problems and working toward solutions.
In December 2016, the RVA Transit Vision plan was released as a blueprint for transit in the Richmond region through 2040, and PSG joins in working toward its goals.
