As part of the Baltimore’s Transit Future campaign, the Greater Washington Partnership and Greater Baltimore Committee convene Baltimore leaders in Richmond to learn about Bus Rapid Transit as a tool for Inclusive Growth.

On October 13 and 14, the Greater Washington Partnership (the Partnership) and Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) hosted a delegation of leaders from the Greater Baltimore region on a visit to Richmond, Virginia to learn about Richmond’s Transportation Revolution. The trip, sponsored by AECOM, was part of the Partnership and GBC’s Baltimore’s Transit Future Campaign, a collaborative effort between business, civic, and elected leaders to accelerate the transformation of Greater Baltimore’s transit system. 

A cohort of 20 senior leaders and transportation officials from Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Anne Arundel County, Howard County, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA), and business and institutional leaders traveled to Richmond to learn more about the award-winning Pulse Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system and talk with Richmond area leaders instrumental in shaping the economic and community development spurred by the Pulse BRT.
