RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -- GRTC will continue to offer shuttle services to Richmond grocery stores on Thursday and Friday. The program is intended for those who are unable to get to the market for groceries because of storm damage from Hurricane Irene.

The free Supermarket Shuttle will run from seven locations around the Richmond Metro area. After arriving at the store, the bus operator will then wait for 35 – 40 minutes while passengers make their purchases.  Then, the buses will deliver passengers to their original stop.  Buses will repeat this routine throughout the scheduled service time.
