Grand Rapids to Get Super Fast Bus Service
Bring on the “Silver Line” – which will be Grand Rapids new Rapid Bus Service. We’ll be getting $32 from the feds to help pay for it. This will be the first bus rapid transit line in Michigan.The the Silver Line will travel a 9.6-mile stretch of Division between 60th Street and the Medical Mile in downtown Grand Rapids.
As a bus rapid transit line, the buses run in dedicated lanes and will be able to carry people from one end to the other in 27 minutes or less. Not sure how it will work, but that’s what they say. It’s supposed to be done by 2014. Do you think it will work? Get the whole story HERE.
