Buried in an article about the move of GRTC headquarters is this exciting statement [emphasis mine]:

The bus company expects to complete a survey of the system, including all bus routes, later this year. The study will set the stage for a public debate over what localities in the region want from the bus system and how much they’re willing to pay to get it.

A debate about what the public wants from transit!

Okay- so the debate may be between localities and their government representatives and not between us regular non-elected folk.  But maybe not.  Maybe GRTC will solicit input from the general public.  How exciting would that be?  A charrette for transit!

So I’d like to get the ball rolling here- what do you want from transit in Richmond?

I’d like to see a downtown circular running from Carytown to Church Hill that runs so frequently you don’t need a schedule.
