The Rapid Silver Line is Back... Again.

The Rapid Silver Line, the boondoggle bus system that failed at the ballot in 2009, is back. Voters in Grand Rapids, East Grand Rapids, Grandville, Kentwood, Walker, and Wyoming will be asked for a 31% millage increase.

I did some extensive reporting on this mess in 2009. Please check those posts out for some detail on the proposed system. For more up to date information, my friends over at ITP Watch are doing a great job of keeping The Rapid on their toes.
