How about designating Uber/ Lyft drop off and pick up areas for each of the downtown corridors. Rideshares stop in the middle of the street to let passengers in and out of vehicles. What if we had a designated space and thereby keeping traffic flowing. (Ionia Street, Bridge Street, VanAndel, The Bob etc.)
