GRTC is operating free hourly shuttles to help people who want to vote early to reach the new Richmond Voter Registrar’s Office at 2134 W. Laburnum Ave.
Regular bus service stops about a half-mile short of the office.
The new shuttle service, which will stop outside the Laburnum Avenue building, began Wednesday and uses smaller vans.
GRTC stated the vans will operate hourly between 7:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Monday through Friday through Oct. 30.
The shuttle service also will be available hourly from 8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24, and Saturday, Oct. 31, when early voting also will be offered at Laburnum Avenue,
The shuttles will pick up and drop off passengers at 9th and Marshall streets on the north side of City Hall, and at Broad and Robinson streets on the north side of the street by the Science Museum of Virginia, GRTC stated.
The city is contributing funds to enable GRTC to cover the cost of the free service, the bus company stated.
CARE van customers also can use that service to get to the Registrar’s Office.
