How do I get to and from departure and arrival points at The Rapid Central Station, Kendall College of Art and Design, Cedar Springs Meijer, and the Science Building and Bond Circle at Ferris' Big Rapids campus?
The shuttle bus service only provides transportation between the route's five stops (Rapid Central Station, Kendall College of Arts and Design, Cedar Springs Meijer, and the Science Building and Bond Circle at Ferris' Big Rapids campus). Riders are responsible for traveling to shuttle bus departure points and from shuttle bus arrival points to final destinations.
For example, a rider who wishes to use shuttle bus service from Grand Rapids to Big Rapids is responsible for traveling from home to the departure point at The Rapid Central Station, from the arrival point at the Science Building to his or her class location on campus, back from that location to the departure point at the Science Building, and then from The Rapid Central Station back to his or her home.
