GRTC’s next service updates take effect Sunday, September 13, 2020. Public timetables will be available online and in area displays in September. Customers can preview the updated system map online now. Reduced service continues on most express routes, but local route updates improve Sunday service, reliability, and destination connectivity.
Route 7A Nine Mile/Airport – This route’s name is updated to indicate the destinations served along Nine Mile Road to Richmond International Airport before returning Downtown via Laburnum Avenue to Nine Mile Road. Directional arrows are added to the map to assist with communicating this routing in the East End.
Route 7B Nine Mile/Laburnum/Airport – This route’s name is updated to indicate the destinations served along Nine Mile Road, turning right on Laburnum Avenue, then serving Richmond International Airport before returning to Nine Mile Road to complete the eastern loop before returning Downtown via Nine Mile Road. Directional arrows are added to the map to assist with communicating this routing in the East End.
Routes 7A & 7B Eastbound – Because of a new roundabout at 23rd and Jefferson, eastbound buses must now operate from 21st St., turning right on Marshall, left on 25th and continuing outbound. This routing change means that two bus stops are missed: #1379 (Jefferson and 21st), #1377 (Jefferson and 23rd). GRTC continues to coordinate with the City of Richmond on a solution that will permit buses to safely resume service uninterrupted along Jefferson Ave.
Route 39 Fairmount/Oakwood – Route is canceled until further notice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Customers may use Route 12 to reach the Market @ 25th. Routes 7A and 7B also serve the market.
