MARP Member Meeting
Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017
10 a.m. – Noon
Grand Rapids Transportation Center
250 Grandville Ave SW, Grand Rapids MI 49503
MARP’s October 21 meeting will be in the Conference Room on the 2nd floor of the Grand Rapids Transportation Center, beginning at 10 a.m. Just to the south of the Transportation Center building and bus canopy is the new Vernon J. Ehlers Amtrak Station.
This meeting will be an opportunity to brainstorm ideas for MARP activities over the next twelve months. Among topics for possible discussion are: recruitment of new members, creative ideas for doing outreach, next steps for the Coast-to-Coast proposal to restore passenger train service connecting Detroit-Ann Arbor-Lansing-Grand Rapids-Holland, and addressing station staffing issues. Your ideas are important to moving forward in the coming year.
You might want to plan to catch The Silver Line, Michigan’s first bus rapid transit line, at the 54th St and Division station. Exit US-131 at 54th St. and go east a few blocks to Division. It appears there is parking on the NE corner of this intersection. The bus will take you to Rapid Central Station.
Following the meeting, we will enjoy lunch (no host) across the street at Founders Brewing, one of several venues that are part of the transformation of downtown Grand Rapids into a thriving destination spot.
