Bus Rapid Transit Study

Bus Rapid Transit Project

Richmond: Virginia's Connected Capital

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high-quality, high-capacity rapid transit system that offers many of the advantages of rail transit but at a more affordable cost. The initial planning and design efforts are underway for BRT along the Broad/Main Street Corridor from Willow Lawn to Rocketts Landing.

BRT will :

  • Improve local and regional mobility
  • Support economic development
  • Promote transit-oriented development
  • Provide attraction transportation choices
  • Enhance environmental quality


Next Steps:

In partnership with the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPY), GRTC continues pursuing construction activities for the GRTC Broad Street Rapid Transit Project.
