The article discusses construction of the public bus system. Growing for years, the public bus system in Grand Rapids, Michigan, known as "The Rapid," had outpaced its existing transit station located just north of downtown. With ridership at an all time high and the need for updated services increasing, there was a need to build a new central station that would consist of a bus transfer platform and adjoining multi-use building. To help reach goals for the new central station structures, The Rapid's governing body, Interurban Transit Partnership hired Progressive AE of Grand Rapids as design and architect engineer. Getting the access control and video security components in every building to talk to the head-end equipment in the central station building was one of the main issues.
