Mobile GR and the City of Grand Rapids today announced a number of improvements to the Downtown Area Shuttle (DASH) bus service for resident and visitor riders. The DASH West and DASH North routes have been consolidated into a single route that covers a larger area of Grand Rapids.

The new DASH service goes live tomorrow, Wednesday, May 10. The new DASH circulator operates every 15 minutes Wednesday through Friday 7 a.m. to midnight, Saturday 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The City has budgeted for 7-day-a-week service and plan to bring it back as soon as capacity issues have improved.

New DASH destinations include a Bridge Street stop that connects much of downtown to a grocery store, a Grand Rapids Public Library stop, and Leonard Street stops that connects a new business and resident district to the downtown area.

GVSU Riders: Multiple nearby transfer opportunities to access DASH circulator on Pew Campus:

  • Winter & Lake Michigan Dr.
  • Front Ave at GR Public Museum
  • Fulton at GVSU Keller Engineering





Laker Line fare enforcement is in effect. GVSU riders should be sure to have GVSU ID available as bus fare. Non-GVSU riders check out fare options with The Rapid.
