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.”
