Folks are concerned about how some businesses are doing during the construction of the ultimately good-thing, Pulse Bus line. Those concerned are rallying like-minded people and urging them to head down to Broad Street and see that everything is open for business.
As a consumer, I’ve experienced zero inconveniences during the construction and have continued to support businesses in the area. Although I might be in the minority because I don’t consider having to walk an extra block on inconvenience.
Join Samantha Kanipe of The Richmond Experience, FaithWilkerson of Unlockingrva and Sarah SeoYun Choi of #igersrva events for a day of supporting your local businesses on Broad Street impacted by GRTC Pulse construction!
Walk, bike, ride the bus, Uber and Lyft into the city and enjoy a city crawl at your own pace, visiting our retailers, coffee shops, restaurants, galleries and other service providers between 2 pm and 5 pm!
Ongoing GRTC construction has been challenging for local businesses and your presence will help them sustain their livelihood and keep the pulse of our city strong. Sharing your experience on social media using#pulsethebroad will connect you with other patrons and we can watch our community impact grow in real time!
