What was the Transit Network Plan?

The Richmond Transit Network Plan was a rethink of the city's bus network design in the context of a changing city and the new Pulse BRT.​

The Transit Network Plan was completed from January 2016 to March 2017. The information provided on this website documents the planning process and the three phases of analysis complete for the Transit Network Plan.​

Phase 1 Report

Our Phase 1 document was called the "Choices Report". It laid out certain facts about transit and development in Richmond, and drew the reader's attention to major choices that these facts forced us to wrestle with.
