RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Mayor Dwight C. Jones is backing a plan to put the GRTC bus transfer station on East Grace Street in downtown Richmond.
The endorsement effectively kills a plan to put the transfer station at Main Street Station in Shockoe Bottom.
He says building this bus station in the heart of the downtown across, from CenterStage, will be $50 million cheaper.
The proposal is to place the transfer station where a parking lot now sits. It would include retail space on the ground floor and office space on the second level.
