Free Ride Fridays are back for the 2017-2018 Grand Rapids Griffins Season


The 2017-2018 Grand Rapids Griffins season just started! For those Grand Rapids Griffins fans looking to save a bit of money, avoid the hassle of parking and travel safely to hockey games, The Rapid can get you where you need to go at no cost.

This year, we’re once again offering free rides to Grand Rapids Griffins Friday home games at Van Andel Arena. This Free Ride Friday promotion gets you to and from the game at no cost to you. Just show your game ticket (paper or on your mobile device) to your bus operator when boarding.

You can plan your trip to Van Andel Arena by visiting and using our RapidConnect Trip Planning tools, as well as simply planning your trip on Google Maps (just choose the transit icon).

Happy riding!
