The Grand Valley State University Laker Rapid bus line is slated to get $57 million in President Obama’s Fiscal 2017 budget.  

The project could add 16 buses to the Rapid’s line-up benefiting Route 50, which runs between downtown Grand Rapids and the Allendale Campus. 

This could mean enhanced service for students and riders.

“We refer to this as light rail with rubber tires.  More cost effective way to transport people around.”

Lisa Haynes is the assistant V.P. for Operations at Grand Valley State University’s Pew Campus and Regional Centers.

Republican Presidential candidate John Kasich sought the student vote at a west Michigan campaign stop that drew estimates of more than 500 attendees.

Education, student debt and drug use were among most-mentioned topics of the Ohio Governor's Monday speech and town hall at Grand Valley State University.

During audience Q&A, Kasich gave a strong condemnation of partisan politicking – while calling President Obama’s use of executive orders an overreach.


A former office coordinator at Grand Valley State University who was charged with embezzlement in connection with the theft of more than $76,000 from the school has pleaded guilty in the case.

It's punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

A count of embezzlement of more than $50,000 but less than $100,000 will be dropped.
