Each summer the Michigan Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI) hosts a youth program in Grand Rapids known as Summer in the City. Students from around the state travel to Grand Rapids for a week of learning that includes riding public transportation and exploring the community. Our Travel Trainers here at The Rapid were fortunate enough to meet with Summer in the City students and help familiarize them with using the bus as a means of transportation.
The students had the opportunity to get familiar with a Rapid fixed-route bus to practice proper boarding and deboarding, as well as learn more about the system and have an opportunity to ask questions.
