I saw this article in the Times-
Now, I have searched myself long and hard on this topic. The fact is that most of the GRTC riders are black, and Wilder's critics seem to imply that's the reason he wants to move the transfers. I wondered if, deep down, that's why I agree with him on this point, but in the end I don't think so. Surely the icky element is a relatively small one and the hard-working riders of GRTC (of which I am one) would be delighted to be rid of them? And I know from experience that the bus congestion affects the bus as well as the car; you just sit there for five or ten minutes, seeing your bus in the distance, but it can't get to you because of all the other buses out there. Maybe this is the impetus needed to get a proper transfer center, out of the weather and patrolled regularly by Richmond's finest.
