The Greater Richmond Transit Company can call itself the best transit property in the state following an excellent showing at this weekend’s Transit Bus State Roadeo in Harrisonburg.

Bus drivers from across the state take part in the competition, showing off their parking skills and ability to maneuver through an obstacle course.

Competing against 13 other agencies, the GRTC’s Maintenance Team took first place with the top overall score on Saturday before the company’s Operator Team followed up with a first place finish on Sunday.

Individually, operator Alvin Wattley won second place in the individual 40 foot competition.

Wattley also teamed up with Joel Armstrong, Carl Brown and Maurice Carter to drive the GRTC’s Operator Team to victory. The four winning operators are pictured above.
