Improving Public Mobility in RVA

Are you interested in Coordinated Transportation in Richmond? Consider attending this event hosted by Community Foundation for a greater Richmond and hear from a panel of speakers including representatives from RVA Rapid Transit, Greater Richmond Transit Company, Bike Walk RVA, and Chesterfield Connect.
Inspired by ChamberRVA’s InterCity Visit to Minneapolis, this event will focus on how RVA’s transportation plan has evolved to meet the needs of the people, and where mobility goes from here. RSVP at the link above!!
