Riding The Rapid to ArtPrize

Metro Pass 2018ArtPrize 10 takes place from September 19 - October 7, 2018. Get around Grand Rapids during this world-class art public art event with the help of The Rapid. 

ArtPrize Metro Pass

Pick up an ArtPrize Metro Pass for just $5 and get 10 rides on any of The Rapid's fixed routes and unlimited rides on the Silver Line throughout the duration of ArtPrize. Get your ArtPrize Metro Pass at participating Meijer stores.

To use your Metro Pass, all you have to do is tap it to the Wave reader at the front of the bus every time you board a fixed route bus. If you need to transfer to another bus, please ask your bus operator for a paper transfer, as your Metro Pass does not have a built-in transfer timeframe. When riding the Silver Line, you don't need to tap your pass on the Wave reader at the station. Just have it with you for verification purposes if you meet one of The Rapid's Fare Enforcement Officers. 

Your ArtPrize Metro Pass is only valid from September 19 - October 7, 2018. Unused rides cannot be refunded.

Park and Ride

During ArtPrize, you can park your car at participating Meijer stores for free and ride The Rapid to get to Downtown Grand Rapids for ArtPrize. 


All of The Rapid's buses, including DASH, are wheelchair-accessible and ADA service animals are welcome. GO!Bus is also a great option for getting to and from ArtPrize.
