During the bike race, VCU and the city of Richmond will be making slight alterations to students’ and residents’ access to transportation, housing and dining.
VCU this semester started charging students $50 or $100 for GRTC transit passes. Previously, these transit passes were free to students who enrolled full- and part-time at the university. After learning about this new fee via students on social media (not through the university itself), I decided to start a petition on Change.org. VCU has done a poor job communicating changes to the GRTC transit program to both new and returning students.
