Share Your Feedback on Transit and Transportation along the West Broad Street Corridor in Henrico County.
GRTC has launched a study with the support of PlanRVA to examine a possible extension of the Pulse Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line west, beyond its current terminus at Willow Lawn.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high quality, high capacity transit system that delivers frequent service through improvements such as dedicated lanes, center-boarding stations, and platform level boarding.
As Henrico County continues to experience growth along the Broad Street corridor, there is an increasing interest in expanding the Pulse BRT from its current western terminus.
One of the first steps in examining any transit system expansion is better understanding the needs of its users. Share your experiences and feedback!
