I live in a retirement community just west of Richmond, Virginia. The closest bus stop is two miles from my location. A slight change in bus routes would provide service to three retirement communities that employ over 1,100 and serve approximately 1,500 residents in independent and assisted living apartments. There is also a nursing home included but transportation is provided to doctor appointments for them. With the shortage of qualified personnel to work at these facilities a bus stop would be beneficial to, not only the residents, but, the staff.
