Founded in 1860, the public transit system is known today as GRTC Transit System has operated continuously, with one temporary suspension of service during the Civil War, for over 150 years. Its history of being a progressive transit system was established when it was the first public transit agency to implement the system-wide use of electric streetcars. That progressive attitude carries forth to today, with service improvements and additions such as expanded services for seniors and individuals with disabilities, welfare-to-work transportation, vanpool, and carpool development, regional taxicab oversight, and expanded service to surrounding counties and cities, GRTC Transit System has truly become a world-class transportation system serving every sector of the Richmond region. It is one of the most efficient transit systems in the United States.
