  Enhanced Mobility Innovation (EMI) Grant Award for Richmond
August 10, 2022

The Office of Congressman Mark DeSaulnier announced that the City of Richmond has been awarded $250,000 by the U/S. Department of Transportation to initiate a pilot program that will allow the city to collaborate coordinate microtransit and paratransit riders into shared journeys using a single fleet. The proposed project aims to provide microtransit and paratransit customers with lower wait times, on-time pickups, and quick, convenient trips while reducing the average cost per trip to the City of Richmond.
