The Pulse will be just the second Bus Rapid Transit line in the state. But there’s more… when it opens, the Pulse will be combined with an updated transit network which will speed transit travel across the city. Meanwhile, Henrico County will soon launch its first significant transit expansion. Carrie updated us on all of these changes.

Mark presented on the Pulse Corridor Transit-Oriented Development plan, which will shape growth in a large part of the city. The city is booming, and we can be engaged in shaping its future.

Stewart Schwartz, PSG Board member, led a "Walk and Talk" tour on Broad Street.
