GRTC says customers will see delays today during the RVA Youth Rally and 5000 Man March

Richmond

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — GRTC said it is customers should expect delays as buses and CARE vans are rerouted, stopped in traffic and place out of service during today’s RVA Youth Rally and Virginia’s 5000 Man March.

The ongoing demonstrations in the City of Richmond continue to block bus access to transit stops, and GRTC is working to maintain service for riders on route and on schedule while also protecting the safety of operators, riders, and pedestrians. Smaller GRTC support vehicles continue to attempt to reach passengers missed at bus stops. CARE trips are operating normally, but CARE vehicles do not enter active protest areas.”

The two demonstrations will cause road closures as early as 9 a.m. for the Youth Rally but roads will reopen behind the march.
