All this talk about rail made me find these from the library

Fancy new Laker Line stop at the zoo!

There are several levels of automation, and we essentially have to pass through each one. Level 0 - No automation. Level 1 - Extremely limited automation that still requires input from driver. Li

You can drive in the bus only lanes in your car, nobody enforces them

PREACH!

Grand Rapids has bus lanes the same way we have form-based non-exclusive zoning: sorta, kind, maybe, not really.

Grand Rapid's motto should be changed to: "A great city, despite half-assing every damn thing!"

Anyone know anything about the permanent shuttering of the long-dormant retail space at Central Station?

The Rapid's in the process of moving the majority of their Admin staff from the building next door to the unused 2nd and 3rd floors of Central Station to cut down on expenses. I believe that is part of the major renovations required for the move.

Wow, wonder what the plans are for that building then? It's kind of a cool little building.

When does the Laker Line start running?

Joe

I think August 28th, maybe the 31st?  The stop under 131 looks really great too.  They tore up all the intersections with stops on Fulton and put down pavers.

For the past several days, I've been seeing the articulated Laker Line buses stopping at the stations up and down Lake Michigan Dr. I assume the drivers assigned to the route are currently being trained.  I absolutely love the looks of the busses. Kind makes it seem like little ol' Grand Rapids has finally put on its big city pants.
