Henrico cuts two GRTC routes

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Henrico County Board of Supervisors voted to discontinue two bus routes, despite a lot of opposition Tuesday night.

The supervisors also approved other reductions to current mass-transit services in the county.

Tuesday night's vote was in response to increased GRTC transit costs that would have put Henrico in a budget shortfall of $701,000.

The changes to the bus routes take effect August 15.
