From the Press Release

Federal Realty Investment Trust is pleased to announce a free shuttle trolley service between the historic Church Hill neighborhood and Willow Lawn during this holiday season. Ford Motor Company selected eight universities around the country to partner with on a sustainability transportation program. Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) was one of the chosen recipients. They are using Ford’s funding to initiate a free trial period during the peak holiday shopping season to test the effectiveness of the system, and if successful will officially launch an ongoing program in early 2015.
