What elements of “community charm” should be included in the design of every Richmond Highway Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station! Take an online survey (available in español) and attend a community event.
We asked for your feedback on potential themes for each station area in 2020 and 2021, and now we’re asking for your final opinion on each station’s theme choice. The “Community Charm” initiative focuses on integrating artwork into each BRT station to reflect the history, identity and character of the neighborhoods surrounding each station area. Students from local schools will design artwork for the windshield area based on themes developed with the community.
Project teams will be on site at various locations along the Richmond Freeway corridor over the next two weeks. Come and learn more about the “community charm” and any other aspect of the project.
