This week, Grand Rapid’s New Silver Line Bus Rapid Transit service officially opened, offering free rides to everyone through Sunday, August 31, 2014.

At the Central Station stop for the Silver Line, riders enjoy a cooler wait next to the living wall installed last month as part of an effort to replace the landscaping lost when the new bus stop seating and shading were added for the line.
