Supporters of a millage to fund and expand bus services in the Grand Rapids metro area celebrated a narrow victory last night.
More than 34,000 people cast ballots. It passed by just 136 votes.
David Bulkowski breathed a huge sigh of relief after hours of unclear results. He’s with the Friends of Transit – a political action committee supporting the bus service.
“We are conservative West Michigan. And together these 6 communities have said ‘yep, we want it.”
The bus system, known as The Rapid, will now be able to serve riders later at night, on the weekends, and more frequently during the workday.
