“It’s nice being able to come onto a mini tribe of people. You’re all going to the same place and you’re all on the journey together.”

Rapid rider Candice N. wants those who have never tried public transportation here in the Greater Grand Rapids metro area to know that it’s not as hard as it looks to learn how to ride. For Candice, The Rapid is her main means of transportation. She gets on board due to the environmentally friendly nature of the bus, as well as its overall efficiency.
