Laker Line BRT

The Laker Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is here! Laker Line BRT service begins on Monday, 8/24/20.

Construction began in the spring of 2018. 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 vehicles are extra long and feature wifi, providing passengers a more comfortable, and more productive ride. 

The Laker Line connects Grand Valley State University’s main campus in Allendale with its downtown campuses on Fulton (Robert C. Pew Campus) and the Health Campus on 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.
