GRTC Bus Service
The city of Richmond's GRTC bus provides passenger pick-up at the Transportation Hub in Tyler Haynes Commons. The combination of GRTC service and the UR Downtown Shuttle gives more departure and arrival times, and greater opportunity to explore Richmond and gain access to civic engagement locations.
GRTC's Route 16 is a 30-minute ride to 7th and Grace streets, with stops at Grove Avenue and Thompson Street in Carytown; Grove Avenue and Robinson Street in the Fan; and 7th and Grace streets near UR Downtown and the Capitol.
The University pays the bus fare for any full-time student, faculty and staff member to use the GRTC transit system. To obtain a UR bus pass, complete the online request form, or visit the Parking and Transportation office in the Special Programs Building.
Construction projects scheduled during the 2016 summer months will impact the current GRTC 16 route on campus. During this time, May 9th – August 21st, the GRTC 16 bus stop will relocate to the corner of Campus Dr. & Gateway Rd. Here is the map detailing the modified GRTC 16 route.
