In partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Commonwealth of Virginia (Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation - DRPT and Virginia Department of Transportation - VDOT), the City of Richmond and Henrico County, GRTC and the Project Team launched the GRTC Pulse service on Sunday, June 24, 2018. GRTC Pulse is a modern, high quality, high capacity rapid transit system that serves a 7.6-mile route along Broad Street and Main Street, from Rocketts Landing in the City of Richmond to Willow Lawn in Henrico County. The Pulse earned a Bronze Standard BRT rating by the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP). GRTC Pulse is jointly sponsored by Bon Secours Richmond Health System and VCU Health System. The Pulse links to many exciting destinations, businesses, services and restaurants.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems in the U.S. have seen increases in ridership over existing services, increased investment along the corridor that takes advantage of the enhanced accessibility and reduced dependence on automobiles, particularly within urban settings. This can lead to more residential and retail development, especially within the station areas that provide immediate access to the service.
