Learn more about the Preferred Alternative for the cost-neutral recommendations for The Rapid Mobility for All / Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA).
The Preferred Alternative is based on the three different service scenarios that were developed in late 2019 and reflects community feedback to date.
Overall Cost-Neutral Recommendations
The Preferred Alternative is designed to better meet the mobility needs of the Grand Rapids urbanized area with transit. It focuses on developing a high frequency network of routes that serves residents, employers, medical centers, and major commercial areas. The funding level is based off August 2020 service levels, which is about 87% of what was operating in 2019. Service levels are lower due to the revenue impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Specific elements of the Preferred Alternative include:
- High Frequency Network
- Innovative Service
- Serve New Areas
- Focus on Commercial Centers
