The Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC) has launched the Richmond area's first microtransit zone. GRTC's LINK Microtransit, a new, on-demand, public transit option, was opened to customers in the Azalea/ Mechanicsville region. Riders in the zone can order LINK rides via the GRTC On The Go app, available for Apple and Android Users, providing new on-demand transportation options for parts of Richmond, Henrico County and Hanover County.
LINK Microtransit is a pilot program that will eventually include five separate microtransit zones. The first zone is heavily integrated with the existing GRTC network, providing direct access to GRTC Route 1, 2 A/B/C, 14 and 91. LINK is fare-free and there is no cap on the number of rides a passenger can take.
The zone will be operating from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
