Ride to Read

Free bus passes to and from the Library!

Getting to the library has never been easier! Ride to Read gives you a free ride on The Rapid bus from any Grand Rapids Public Library location to your home or school. Use the second ride on the pass to return to the library.

How it works:

1. Visit any GRPL location to use our computers or wifi, study, attend a program, or borrow books, movies, and music.

2. Show your library card or school ID at a GRPL desk to get a Ride to Read pass. Ride to Read is for students under 18, and parents with their children.

3. Swipe the Ride to Read pass on any Rapid bus line to go home or to school.

4. Use the second ride on the ticket to come back to the library.

Ride to Read is made possible through the generous support of:
Grand Rapids Public Library Foundation
The Rapid
Friends of the Library
