Transportation Website Expands to Four County Area in West Michigan

Transportation Website Expands to Four County Area in West Michigan

West Michigan residents in a four county area can now visit one website to find a variety of public and private transportation options if they need a ride for work, school, medical or social service visits, or intercity travel.

The Ottawa County Transit Coalition recently expanded its website, www.lakeshoreridelink.org, to include the counties of Allegan, Ottawa, Kent and Muskegon.  The website, which was first launched in 2010 with transportation providers for Ottawa County only, now includes more than 50 transportation providers with detailed information on their services and costs to help residents find a ride.

Construction update

From: http://www.cityofwhitehall.org/

MDOT will begin construction on the bridge in downtown Whitehall on Monday, April 18. The official detour will be Division Street to Hanson Street but Lake Street can also be used to avoid the construction. All downtown businesses will be accessible. We are sorry for any inconvenience and anticipate construction to be completed by Memorial Day.
