CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Community Climate Collaborative (C3) is pushing to expand and improve transit as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

After a year-long study and community engagement, C3 is recommending 14 ways to make this happen.

“There’s just a lot of improvements we can do,” C3 Executive Director Susan Kruse said. “We are urging Charlottesville City Council and the [Albemarle County Board of Supervisors] to act more quickly.”

It wants to make fare-free transit permanent, set a goal to have no route frequencies in excess of 30 minute intervals, and move swiftly to increase access to bus stops.

C3 will be hosting a transit and equity webinar on September 29 to discuss these recommendations. If you would like to attend you can click here.
