The capital of Virginia and one of the oldest cities in the United States, Richmond is exploring its transit options as it prepares to implement its first BRT line.
In late 2015, the City of Richmond initiated a Transit Network Plan. JWA, together with planning firm Michael Baker International, helped the City analyze the current bus network of Richmond, and reconsider the design of the network in the context of a changing city and the new Pulse BRT. The City’s Richmond Transit Network Plan explores a wide range of future transit networks in Richmond. As a result of this planning process, a completely redesigned transit network was implemented in conjunction with the Pulse BRT line in June 2018.
