Introducing a new, limited RamRide route 

We are pleased to announce that, moving forward, a limited RamRide route will be in service during VCU closures. Two buses will run on a continuous loop to/from Larrick Center, Sanger Hall, and 11th and Clay streets from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. This addition comes in response to feedback we received from subscribers regarding the impacts experienced during university closures. While subscribers will still be prompted to relocate to alternate locations, we believe this new option will help close the service gap and better address subscribers’ travel needs during these periods.   As a reminder, RamRide has moved to the Ride Pingo app, available for download on VCU Mobile and Google Play/Apple app stores. You can track RamRide buses in real time using this platform.  

Standard RamRide service will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 17.
