Transportation In and Around Richmond on the NEW GRTC PULSE
The brand new above-ground rapid transit GRTC Pulse is now open! This new transportation option means that you can stay at multiple downtown hotels, walk out the door, walk a block and then hop on the Pulse to reach Main Street Station, where almost all of the major events are held. If you are staying anywhere close to the 14 Pulse stations, then you'll have NO need for a car while you attend the Expo.
The Pulse runs from the near West End (Willow Lawn) to the far East End (Rocketts Landing) and stops at Main Street Station. You can literally attend the Expo, take your purchases, hop on the Pulse and never need to drive. The Pulse stations stop at most of Richmond's culinary, historic and cultural focal points meaning that you can enjoy many of the area's best restaurants, breweries, distilleries, shopping districts, museums, and event venues with ease!
