Have more bus stops available to outskirts

I think by offering more connections that are in close proximity, people would be more inclined toward public transportation options.

I don't know what a specific radius should be for this, but towns just outside of GR should have a shuttle to a main, already established bus stop. I think it would be cool to have a highway shuttle as many people live in the country and have no choice but to car pool or drive personal vehicles when commuting downtown.

P.S. Caitlin - this is a good proposal - do you need help to work it up and fill in the rest of the form? feel free to ask Tom Bulten if you need someone to bounce your thinking off!

You bet, Caitlin Soergel ! Idrees Mutahr  and I are glad to chat about this with you. it sounds like you're envisioning regular shuttles between Grand Rapids and, say, Hudsonville, Marne, Rockford, Ada, Caledonia.... I wonder if we could find research that shows how many people commute to Grand Rapids from each of those places.
