Riding Safely During COVID

We are using many safety precautions to keep you safe and healthy on the bus this semester. Buses are cleaned with an anti-microbial cleaner and high-touch points are sanitized throughout the day. Masks are required for your safety. Please continue to do your part by maintaining proper social distance, wearing your mask, and washing or sanitizing your hands regularly. 

GVSU and The Rapid are continually monitoring ridership for any crowding issues on the GVSU routes (LL, 37, 48 and 85). To increase capacity on our off-campus routes, we have added buses to allow for better social distancing and increased frequency. Our newest route, The Laker Line (replaces Rt 50 from Allendale Campus to Grand Rapids Campuses), has articulated buses with almost double the capacity of the standard buses and will also help in allowing distancing and a faster commute.
