The University of Richmond is hosting a multi-media C-SPAN bus open to the public on Sept. 27 from 1 to 3 p.m. The "50 Capitals Tour” engages students and community members through interactive demonstrations of C-SPAN's multi-platform public service resources.

The 45-foot customized motor coach will be placed on the University Forum. Boarding the bus is free and visitors will have access to high-tech, interactive resources, including:

  • Access to an exclusive experience available on 11 large-screen tablets featuring C-SPAN programming and political and educational resources
  • A smart TV and classroom area for conversations with students and teachers
  • A high-definition TV production studio for taped and live programming
  • A 360-degree video station featuring C-SPAN's unfiltered coverage of high-profile events and behind-the-scenes tours of U.S. landmarks
  • A D.C.-themed selfie station where visitors can share their bus experience through social media 

The bus is visiting each state’s capital and participants will be able to share viewpoints on state issues and what they think Washington leaders should do to address local concerns. C-SPAN representatives will gather these video responses as part of its “Voices from the States” initiative.
