Laker Line BRT

The Laker Line is coming soon. Construction is slated to begin in the spring of 2018, with service in 2020. The Laker Line will be faster than the current Route 50 with platform level boarding, advanced ticketing, traffic signal prioritization, and three doors for quicker loading and unloading. The vehicle will even be extra long, providing passengers a more comfortable ride. 

The Laker Line will connect Grand Valley State University’s main campus in Allendale with its downtown campus and the Medical Mile. Riders will have a direct, more predictable and less congested travel experience. What’s more, the Laker Line will share stations with the Silver Line, creating a more robust rapid transit network in our community.
