The Transit Riders Association of Charlottesville is an organization that seeks for improved transportation services in the city of Charlottesville.

History

The Transit Riders Association of Charlottesville emerged in 2012 from a rally supported by Brandon Collins and Paul Long. The group's requests include:[1]

  • Full service at night and on Sunday
  • Increased bus frequency on the busiest routes
  • Increased access to Martha Jefferson
  • More frequent breaks for drivers

The group's formation occurred at the same time that Nelson Nygaard, a California consulting firm, was hired to review the city's transit system.[2] The group has pledged to be part of that effort.

On November 10, 2012, the group held a rally calling on Albemarle County to increase funding for Charlottesville Area Transit to help create new bus lines in the county. [3]
