Join Us April 25, 2019 for National Get on Board Day

Get on Board for Public Transit

Get on Board Day is a new national advocacy day that is all about generating awareness of and increasing support for public transportation.

The Rapid is partnering with organizations to have bus pop-ups throughout the Greater Grand Rapids area. The goal is to spread bus love and teach individuals of all ages and abilities on how to ride the bus!

On April 25, 2019, we will be visiting locations throughout our six-city service area to quickly teach individuals how to ride the bus!

Visit us at the following locations for a quick training on how to ride the bus like a pro, a chance to win prizes, and a free, pre-loaded Wave card.
