The man who runs Charlottesville Area Transit says he’s made it easier for bus riders to get to grocery stores. John Jones says this year’s route changes have affected the traffic volume for some stores.

He suspects it’s added to the business of the Food Lion in Willoughby Square at the expense of the Pantops Food Lion.
