Explore The Silver Line Corridor One Selfie At A Time

Getting out and exploring the city isn’t always at the top of you to-do list. But that’s about to change with a little help from the Silver Line and social media.

SVG Real Estate Firm has the perfect family-friendly event for anyone looking to get out and explore: The #SilverLineSelfie Scavenger Hunt. This transit-fueled event is open to members of the Grand Rapids community and surrounding neighborhoods with the hopes of encouraging exploration of local landmarks while getting familiar with Michigan’s first bus rapid transit line, the Silver Line.RN1_4925

You may notice from the name of this event — #SilverLineSelfie — that it’s a social media themed scavenger hunt. Even if you’re not a social media whiz, it’s still worth snapping a few selfies for. The #SilverLineSelfie scavenger hunt is being held on Friday, September 19 from 9:00 – 11:30 am. The fun kicks off in downtown Grand Rapids at Rapid Central Station where participants will gather to purchase Silver Line day passes ($3/each) then board a Silver Line bus. Participants will then follow the route throughout the city, using their phones to take “selfie” shots (we can’t wait to see all of the smiling faces) at designated landmark stops along the away.

All #SilverLineSelfie participants will be encouraged to post their photos to an SVG-designated Facebook or on Twitter using the #SilverLineSelfie hashtag.

If you’re interested in taking part, register at http://svgfirm.com/silverlineselfie/. RSVPs are required, with participants asked to register by September 16.
