Lobby Day (Jan. 20) parking/transportation impacts

RamRide impacts:

On Monday, January 20, increased traffic near the State Capitol will close several streets which will impact RamRide’s accessibility to the A, M and R Lots.

As a result, RamRide will not provide service on Monday, Jan. 20 to these facilities. All A, M, and R Lot subscribers should park in the Eighth St. Deck or N Deck during this time. Your hangtag permit and/or VCU ID card will allow you access. In the event you encounter issues entering or exiting, please press the “i” button for assistance.

It may also be helpful to incorporate additional time in your commute, particularly if you are traveling during the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. timeframe.

The I Lot will not be impacted, and RamRide service to this facility will continue as normal.

  • Passengers on the Monroe Park Campus can board at Cary & Laurel, Cary & Harrison or Cary & Belvidere to travel eastbound to the MCV Campus.
