RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - GRTC buses are back on a normal schedule after being on a limited daytime schedule Monday and suspended over the weekend.

Service was suspended over the weekend after a Pulse bus was destroyed after being set on fire during protests Friday night.

As the night turned violent, protesters set fire to a Pulse bus, leaving it destroyed.
