RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — If you ride the bus from Richmond to Chesterfield, you’ll have a chance to tell county leaders what you think of proposed fare increases this week.

GRTC wants to make two express routes from Chesterfield to downtown more expensive starting July 1.

In fact, the 81X from Chesterfield Plaza will increase from $3.50 to $6 and the 82X from Commonwealth Centre Parkway will jump from $4 to $6.

If you want to get more information and tell GRTC leaders what you think, an open meeting will be held Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Ridefinders at 1013 E Main Street in downtown Richmond.
