The Downtown Area Shuttle – or DASH bus – in Grand Rapids will have new hours starting in late August.
Beginning August 27, the DASH will run seven days a week. It will also run until 1:30 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Josh Naramore, Director of Mobil GR and Parking Services, says the decision to extend hours was about the number of people in the downtown area.
“Monday through Friday, 6:30 to 10:30 is great for a lot of things, but we’re an ever-growing downtown community with a lot more visitors and a lot more residents,” Naramore said.
The DASH bus has routes that go to Founders Brewing Company, Spectrum Health, and the downtown YMCA. The routes stretch from the Heartside neighborhood and the Downtown Market all the way to north of the Medical Mile.
