On June 25, Pat Gottschalk, as chair of the board of ChamberRVA, spoke at an event sponsored by the Greater Washington Partnership, RVA Rapid Transit and ChamberRVA titled: “Improving Mobility: Richmond’s Transportation Success”.
A panel of Mayor Levar Stoney; Gary Armstrong, board chair for GRTC; and Jennifer Mitchell, executive director of the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, discussed and celebrated the success of the Pulse rapid transit system in Richmond after its first year of operation. At the event, the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy awarded the Pulse a bronze ranking for design and implementation. That award places the Pulse in some stellar company, alongside rapid transit lines in Los Angeles, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Bangkok, Paris, Mexico City and Buenos Aires.
